I’m raising money to write, publish and print an “Employment Skills” book aimed at 14 – 18 year olds mainly from challenging or disadvantaged backgrounds.
My name is Tim Guest and I run a distribution business in Bedfordshire. For over 5 years I’ve been Mentoring in local schools and even did a session in HMP Bedford – Coaching people on the basics like CV writing, covering letters, interview skills, questioning techniques, presentation skills etc. The adversities that children in Care or less privileged backgrounds have overcome in their lives often makes them very resilient and determined – Characteristics most of them don’t realise they have, let alone think to write on a CV!
I’ve seen some real progress with the people I’ve worked with but I want to do more. I believe everyone deserves the same chance in life, regardless of their background and I’m hoping this book will give people the advantage they need to make a real go of life – Be that finding employment, an apprenticeship or getting in to further education. The book will be a step by step “how to” guide covering all the topics in the Skills Programme I’ve put together over the years.
Every £1 raised will go to producing a professional book, publishing the book and printing copies to give to schools for FREE.
Every donation will be gratefully received and you will be offered the chance to have your name and / or business name printed in the book as a donor.
