Elevate: Graduate Training Programme
This programme is designed to help recent graduates to develop their skills in preparation for the working world. The programme is run in collaboration with London Metropolitan University and is open exclusively to London Met third year students and recent graduates.
The 2019 session ran over the summer, during which participants engaged with You Press creatives and community professionals in a relaxed workshop environment. Read more about the workshops and participant experiences below.
“I enjoyed all the Elevate workshops, it was an engaging journey with a multidimensional approach on the organisers end. All the guest speakers were very interesting. I learned some new information that will help me in archiving my goals. All the workshops were very motivational and positive. I loved the idea of a nearly 3 month commitment, it’s similar to establishing a positive routine!”
“I believe overall the Elevate programme was very helpful and beneficial for skills I will need later on in life. The skills I have gained have improved from when I first started the programme until now. I am very pleased to have been a part of this experience.”
“Elevate enhanced my work skills, especially how to be punctual. I enjoyed the interview skills components the most.”
“This was a very helpful experience. Certain classes stood out for me, especially the interview preparation and networking events which were held at City Hall.”
“My experience with this program has been very beneficial. The different guest speakers that came all taught me good skills I’ll be able to use, especially when it comes to finding a job. This programme has also shown me that I have the ability to go after what I want in my life.”
