Find Your Voice: Back to Work

Overview:

The Find Your Voice: Transition back to work course has been thoughtfully created to align to each

participants starting point. Through a strategic approach aimed at work re-entry, participants are guided in

developing and empowering their unique voice while fostering a personal sense of safety within themselves

and, over time, the group.

 

As participants progress through the course's scaffolded approach, they engage in activities to boost

confidence in exploring interpersonal skills at a personalised pace. The group setting aims to foster an

environment where individuals can discover their unique voice, receive support in developing resources and

skills to overcome challenges, and build the confidence needed to re-enter the workforce. Furthermore,

participants will have the opportunity to directly interact with a visiting employer, allowing them to showcase

their qualifications and skills. This hands-on experience not only improves interview skills but also provides

valuable insights into the qualities and attributes employers seek in candidates, along with a better

understanding of the current job market and industry expectations.

Engagement Strategy for Group Settings:

To ensure engagement in group settings, Free Voice employs interactive learning methods. These include,

self-reflection learning resource work-book exercises, gradually moving to pair and group discussions, video’s,

role-playing exercises, and collaborative activities that encourage participants to share their insights and

experiences. Learning skills to build self-awareness of personal safety cues, personal barriers, challenges, and

successes are cornerstones of the Free Voice values. Practical exercises and engaging directly with a visiting

recruiting employer makes the content relatable and applicable, fostering a sense of involvement and

participation and a high possibility of potential employment.

Strategy for Individuals Falling Through the Cracks:

Free Voice provides personalised support for individuals who may be struggling. Particular attention is paid

to each participant's progress and well-being. Regular check-ins and one-on-one sessions during break times

are made available to address concerns and offer additional guidance. This personalised approach helps

prevent anyone from feeling left behind or overlooked, ensuring that all participants receive the support they

need to succeed. If participants require additional support communication will be facilitated with a Workways

psychologist to ensure their specific needs are being met.

Facilitation of Course from Individual Sessions to Group:

 

The Find Your Voice course has been designed for groups. Module 1 starts with educational activities focusing on

building a safe environment so trust can build. Each participant is acknowledged for their stage in their

own journey. Participants receive personalised attention to address their unique needs and challenges. As the

course progresses, there is a gradual transition from individual exercises to pairs to larger group activities. This

shift allows participants to practice their newfound skills in a supportive group environment.

Post-employer visit, subsequent sessions include dedicated time for debriefing through activities and

discussions. This deliberate approach supports a seamless transition by gradually introducing group activities

and fostering a sense of community among participants.

In summary

 

The Find Your Voice: Transition back to work course encompasses a diverse array of topics, emphasising skills

and techniques to strengthen participants' authentic voices, thereby instilling greater confidence for an easier

and confident transition into the workforce. The course adopts interactive methods and progresses gradually

in a supportive manner. Participants also have the unique opportunity to engage directly with a visiting

employer, showcasing their skills and qualifications, enhancing interview techniques, and gaining insights into
