Employers invited to “Attracting Talent” workshop at R.E.A.L. Education’s new Hinckley school hub


We’re inviting employers to attend a free “Attracting Talent; Employer Value Proposition” training workshop being held at R.E.A.L Education’s new Hinckley hub.

The workshop on Thursday, 26th March will take place from 9am to 12.30pm at the soon to be R.E.A.L Independent special school.

R.E.A.L., which is an acronym for Re-thinking, Engagement and Approaches to Learning was established in 2008 to provide creative educational solutions for children and young people, between the ages of 5 and 19, who may be “lost to learning” or “hard to place”.

R.E.A.L. will be opening their new Hinckley hub on Station Road next month.

Employers are invited to see the new hub and attend the free training workshop being delivered by Access Generation CIC. The social enterprise are delivering the training as part of the Work Live Leicestershire (WiLL) project.

The WiLL project, which is being led by sight-loss charity Vista, and funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund, aims to help over 500 people into work, training or learning opportunities in rural areas.

The training workshop will provide employers with insights from the Employment Accessibility research carried out by young people assessing the job section on 600 employer websites.

Jemma Redden, Director of Access Generation, said: “We want this research to be used to highlight the gap in the recruitment process for inexperienced young people. Employers are invited to this training workshop to learn what it takes to become an employer of choice for the next generation.”

The interactive facilitated workshop will see employers working in groups with young adults from Access Generation’s peer panel.

Chris Newman, the school lead for the site, said: “We’re delighted to be hosting this workshop for Access Generation and look forward to connecting with local employers.”
