‘Shop Indie’ Turns ‘One’!
This month, we’re once again working with Derbyshire Adult Community Education (DACES), to run an education programme for young adults in Chesterfield.
The programme is aimed at young people aged 16 to help them gain the skills they need for the world of work, and can lead to apprenticeships, further training and employment.
Vicar Lane is working with organisers on a ‘Virtual Employer Challenge’ within the programme, whereby the young people are set a task within a real-life employment environment. Participants will watch a virtual tour of the shopping centre to familiarise themselves with the task at hand on Wednesday 8th July, before working on their ideas. They then have to present their proposed solution back to the employer at the end of the programme.
Proposals will be presented by the learners, back to the centre management team via Zoom on Thursday 23rd July.
