Do you live in London? Have you been made unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic? SOHK wants to help.

As a direct response to those who have lost their jobs as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, School of Hard Knocks has created a shortened, online, and high impact version of our standard eight-week course. With an urgent focus on re-employment, the SOHK Back in the Game course will be delivered every Tuesday and Thursday over a four week period (27th October – 19th November) and will run from 9:30 am to 12:00pm.

What should I expect from the course?
The Back in the Game course will include three compact Zoom sessions (live) each morning for one week, with facilitated group work followed by scheduled 1-1 phone calls in the afternoon to support individual needs. Their dual aim is to help participants both mentally and practically. They want to help participants get into a positive state of mind with some helpful strategies to enable a growth mindset as they consider possible new sectors and employers. They also want to support participants as they get up to speed on their accelerated journey back into work. This includes a CV re-work, thinking through their online profiles and interview preparation and technique.

How do I take part in the course and how do I sign up?
You can do this course entirely from home as long as you have access to Wi-Fi and some means of interacting with the live sessions on a laptop, tablet or even a phone. By utilising the Zoom platform, we will recreate a sense of being together without physically being together.

To register your interest, all you need to do is email info@schoolofhardknocks.org.uk but be quick as the course is limited to 15 spaces.
