Equal People Performing Arts have been commissioned to run four ‘One Step Beyond’ Workshops during the Spring of 2017. These workshops are aimed at helping the unemployed get into work, training or volunteering.
Using Drama exercises and techniques, the workshops look at the first impression that candidates give when attending an interview. Using confidence-building Drama games and role play, the candidates look at the positive ways to overcome nerves and insecurities.
We also give advice on CV and letter writing and following up applications.
The afternoon is spent in mock interviews with local employers, who give constructive feedback to the participants in a non-threatening environment.
The workshop days have been delivered by our preferred provider, Mushroom Theatre Company, and have received positive feedback from participants and local businesses alike.
A private Facebook group has been setup to provide an opportunity for ongoing peer support. Participants can contact us for more details.
