The story.

Musharaf Malik, REP Delivery and Partnership Manager and Lyz Stepanishyna, REP Case Manager, were joined by two participants from the REP scheme to speak to the BBC about the support they have received. You can listen to the show here https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0h61h1s 

The REP Team held a recruitment day in London where we were joined by one of our partner employers, Arena, who were interviewing some of our REP participants for jobs they were recruiting for. When the interviews had finished, the team took some time out to show our participants some of London’s most famous attractions. You can read more about it here

Get Set UK’s REP Case Manager, Zakir Rasheed has been supporting Abdul Ahmadzai and Mohammad Qadar Adin. Originally from Afghanistan, they had to flee their country due to conflict and have faced challenges from living in temporary accommodation to struggling to find employment support.  

Zakir helped Abdul create a CV,a cover letter and prepared him for interviews with mock interview scenarios.  Abdul’s commitment and efforts combined with support from Zakir helped him successfully secure a position as an Admin Manager at Sahara Care Community Service. Mohammad Qadar Adin needed support to improve his English and boost his confidence. Zakir enrolled him in an ESOL course run by our skills and training arm, TheLightBulb. Mohammad is now well-prepared for his professional life and the ESOL course has been instrumental in improving his language proficiency. 

Get Set for opportunities.

We are ready to help you take your next step.
