Communication Skills Workshop – 9 February

Effective communication and interpersonal skills underpin everything, whether in the workplace or elsewhere. Communication skills allow you to understand and be understood by others.

These can include but are not limited to communicating ideas to others clearly, a friendly and confident demeanour, respecting other points of view and speaking in a public setting. Developing your communication skills can do much to help you advance in the workplace.

In this workshop, we explain what communication skills are and how you can improve your own.

Build self-confidence for work – 16 February

Having confidence in the workplace can be crucial to your success. Confidence can make you more motivated and ambitious, less anxious and stressed and more likely to drive performance, career growth and work relationships. This workshop will guide you through some steps you can take to help you boost your self-confidence and use it in the workplace.

Corporate and Business Partnership Opportunities

Could you support refugees?

The New Roots project provides help and support to refugees across the Yorkshire region to improve their skills towards gaining sustainable employment.

We are seeking for corporate and business partners who could:

  • deliver an online talk about what its like to work in your company or sector
  • host a virtual tour of your workplace which to provide a better understanding of the world of work to jobseekers who are not familiar with UK work places.

Your help will be a stepping stone to meaningful work, stability and the self sufficiency that refugees are looking for.
