If you would prefer a taster, you could come along to our 2 day training sessions, which will help you with work readiness skills; confidence, communication, team working and the basics of freelancing.  You could also book an appointment with an adviser to work one to one with you on getting you ready to freelance. 

What have you got to lose? 

There’s also the opportunity to meet our project teams and explore the Staffs opportunities right here in our region.  

Come along and meet the teams over a buffet Lunch and find out all the ways you can get involved and gain valuable experiences. There will be student representatives from each program so that you can get a real feel of what they’re all about.
