Graduate Accelerator Programme

The two-week Graduate Accelerator Programme (GAP), in collaboration with the Job Centre Plus and Dearne Valley College, is a unique scheme that supports graduates to the fill the ‘gap’ in making the transition from University to full-time employment.

The programme offers a team of Mentors, Guest Speakers and Psychologists to work on key employability skills and knowledge such as working in a team, effective communication, customer service, time management, innovation, problem solving, presenting, social media and commercial awareness.

For employers, we offer them an opportunity to avoid the rigmarole of traditional recruiting and paper applications at our ‘Meet the Graduate’ event. Employers are invited to come along and watch our graduates present themselves, their skills and experiences, followed by a networking lunch where you might meet the young graduate talent that your business requires. There are also a variety of employer incentives attached to this programme.
