Group Employment Skills Program
The Neil Squire Society in Regina is offering a virtual Employability Skills Program. This is a 3 month program that prepares individuals for work by covering all things employment. From helping individuals to discover their skills, to resume and cover letter drafting, job search strategies, interview preparation, wellness for work, and various other topics that are pertinent to employment. In addition to this, each participant is matched with a Job Developer to provide one-on-one support to the participant with anything they might need.
Aside from the “classroom” work, at the end of the 3 month program participants complete a Work Placement. This is an opportunity for participants to conduct a job search, secure an opportunity, and ultimately gain skills and experience in a job that meets the individual’s interests. Additionally, these opportunities provide participants with experience to add to or build their resumes to help with their job search following the program.
The program’s next start date is January 31st. After this date the start dates are in 1 month intervals with the next start date being February 28th, then March 28th, and April 25th.
