Unlocking Potential

Big Lottery Logo

BYHP has Big Lottery funding to deliver ‘Unlocking Potential’, which helps young people to move into employment, education, training or volunteering opportunities.

Young people aged 16-25 take part in a six week course. This is made up of five accredited AQA units and a Level 2 Food Hygiene qualification. The course is designed to assist the young people identify personal goals, and to acquire life and work related skills. The young people receive training on Customer Service Skills and also managing finances with the help of Barclays Bank. We help young people with CV writing and to develop interview techniques by performing mock interviews with the assistance members from the Banbury Rotary Club.

Following the completion of the in-house training, we work with the Young People to carry-out an additional six weeks work experience programme. This is either in a field of work they are most interested in, or at BYHP’s On a Roll our sandwich shop focusing on Catering. The Young People are assisted to progress by helping them to find employment, return to education or gain additional training or volunteering.

Often, the volunteering and work opportunities are sourced through BYHP’s On A Roll, BYHP’s social enterprise, or our contacts and local businesses. We work in close partnership with the Job Centre and NEET-EET services.
