    Hi @shuv27 :) I hope you've been getting on okay!

    You can sign up for the scheme here

    I think it starts off with an eligibility check. You can then create an account and register to get started. After that, I believe you'll receive further information about getting support from one of our advisers.

    I hope that helps. If you have any further questions, please just let us know, and we can do our best to find the answer out for you :)

    As it turns out it was a gentleman called Isaac and he was very reassuring. Even before I began I said to myself that I must be open and honest about my situation. My first words were, “I understand you are trying to help me, and for you to do that you must know everything.” The conversation went very well and by the end of it I was closer to my goal of getting an interview! Baby steps! you Scope, and the Online Community!

    Hello Tori_Scope, just a follow up on my progress: Yesterday (Tuesday) i had my second appointment with Isaac. I am so happy with our discussion. This is because Isaac presented me with a structure to follow which fills me with confidence because, as it is said "Rome wasn't built in a day". This step by step process is keeping me on track towards my goal, and I was very grateful to have someone of the calibre of Issac to metaphorically hold my hand as I go forth.

    Specifically he spoke to me about my CV and cover letter, and has shown me where I have been going wrong on both counts, so I have work to do!

    Thereafter, once I have completed both tasks, he advised me to start making applications! MY EMPLOYMENT BALL HAS STARTED ROLLING!!! And in the words of Queen, "Don't stop me now!"

    I repeat my gratitude to everything about Scope , there is no way  I could have done this without your team!

    Thank you,

    Shuv27
