Marketing Text Talent 4... is a groupwork-based diagnostic assessment workshop designed to help participants identify personal talents and skills, and raise apsirations, in order to help them better identify future courses of training and/or employment. This programme is applicable for use with the unemployed.
Description Talent 4 uses a strengths-based approach to raise participants awareness of their talents and skills with a view to helping them make better and more informed judgements about future training and/or employment goals. This is done through the facilitation of a 6 session groupwork programme that is both engaging and revealing of personal preferences. It does not take a 'tick-box' approach but rather uses an experiential methodology to enable facilitators to reflect an individual's skills. Information gathered from the workshop is entered into online software which generates potential areas of work interest based on the individual's skill set.
