The Prince’s Trust supports young people aged 13- 30 years from disadvantaged backgrounds find and get into employment, education or training. To support ENGIE, we delivered a series of employability and CV workshops throughout the two-week programme.
ENGIE has been working with The Prince’s Trust for the last six years to help young people Get Into Facilities Management (FM) and Building Services careers. The Get Into Building Services program is a two-week work experience program which aims to give young people experience, confidence, exposure and skills to progress into work within the Facilities Management industry. ENGIE has been delivering this program since 2012.
We supported ENGIE and Prince’s Trust by running a series of Employability Workshops which included interview techniques, role-playing and CV writing techniques to the young people participating in the Get Into program.
During this two week program, the young people received their Health and Safety in the form of HASA and their CSCS cards. The young people then spent six days on one of ENGIE’s sites before a Celebration Event where each young person presented their experience and received a certificate to acknowledge their achievement.
James Fitzpatrick, Managing Director, commented: “It’s been a real pleasure for us to work with the Princes Trust and ENGIE to support these inspirational young people as they have worked through the “Get In To” programme. We can now look forward to seeing how their careers can develop in FM and Building Services.”
Tom Barrow, Social Impact Manager, commented: “Boden Group have been really enthusiastic and supportive of the Get Into programme we are running with the Prince’s Trust since we first contacted them. They have participated in various sessions running employability workshops for young people focussing on interview skills and CV writing which went down really well. Following the completion of the programme we’re hoping that Boden Group’s network will also help us place young people into jobs.”
