On Wednesday 29th March Suited for Success hosted it's first workshop day at our new referral centre with a group of young women aged between 18 - 25yrs on a Sport 4 Life programme called 'Project You'.
Project You is a free female only personal development and employability programme run by Sport 4 Life led by an all female staff team who deliver workshops alongside external partners that include - first aid, OCR qualification, employability and life skills, health and wellbeing and more.
Dressing for success
For the workshop at Suited for Success the group explored how the clothes they wear can be a tool to express themselves and feel confident. Suited for Success manager Patricia White also talked about the importance of dressing for success when going for a job interview including the do's and don'ts of what to wear, body language and presentation skills.
After the workshop the young women then got the opportunity to dress as though they were going to a job interview. The objective of the dressing session was so they could see what it's like to feel comfortable in smart work clothing as opposed to jeans and leggings.
