Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Great Minds Together is a not for profit organisation with a multidisciplinary team that aims to deliver better outcomes for children and young people, particularly those with social, emotional and mental health needs and/or special educational needs and disabilities. They aim to build in the skills builder framework into the interventions they deliver to young people. When delivering the Growth Mindset programme, they will utilise the framework and build it into our training of staff and volunteers so that they can use it as a basis when supporting young people into becoming more employable.
