New Accelerate course launches for job seekers

Written by Bella Mezger

Launching this month for job seekers is a new online course — Accelerate: Finding work and landing the ideal role. 

Equipping people with the skills and confidence to find a job, the free course consists of three one-hour sessions on finding your skills and strengths, creating a great CV, and interview tips. 

Participants are also offered three one-to-one coaching sessions with a trained coach, to enable them to take their job search to the next level and land a great role. One of the course coaches said: “We’re really excited to come alongside people and support them to find a job and identify the things they enjoy doing and are really good at. For some people, we hope this will be a step in a positive new direction.” 

One Andover leader said of the coaching, “The coaches are fantastic at asking the right questions to help you approach challenges clearly, see new opportunities and help you plan for a bright future.” 

For those recently out of work due to Covid, or who have been unemployed for some time, this course hopes to support people to unlock their potential and get on the path to a successful and fulfilling career.  

Chris Bradish, Vicar of St Mary’s Church Andover commented, “I couldn’t recommend the Accelerate course more highly.  It is the perfect choice for people wondering what might be next.  If you are looking for work, thinking about changing careers, or wanting to develop new skills – this is the course for you.” 

The course is being run as part of The Lighthouse, a social action hub in central Andover.
