Employability & Career Coaching
Work with Apprentice Winner Lee McQueen!
Raw Talent is a recruitment and training organisation founded by Entrepreneur Lee McQueen - who also won BBC TV Show The Apprentice before working for Lord Suger for over two years. Founded in 2011, Raw Talent has been teaming up with Harrow College for the past 6 years to hold the Employability Academy! Mentoring students just like YOU!
Harrow College is the only place in the UK where you can take part in the Employability Academy. This is once in a lifetime opportunity to work with Lee McQueen and his team. Mentoring and helping you to develop your skills in work, life, college and university, if you choose to go. The Employability Academy will only run once in this college year... so this is your only chance to be a part of a unique learning experience!
The first step on your journey is to APPLY! This process is run exactly the same way huge organisations and brands - think Nike, Tesco, Virgin Media - hire their staff. This is your chance to experience that process BUT you will receive full and detailed feedback on how to improve so when you do apply to Adidas, Barclays or Red Bull you know what to do to stand out!
After applying, you will be asked to attend a face-to-face interview. Again you will receive feedback on how well you perform. You will be asked questions such as "why did you apply to Raw Talent?" and "what do you want to achieve after college?" But don't worry, there is no wrong answer!
After the interview stage, 50 students will be invited to an 'Audition Day'. If you have ever watched 'The Apprentice' on BBC it will be exactly like that, just in one day instead of 12 weeks! (and with no cameras following you around!)
The final stage is an eight-part training course which includes CV writing, interview techniques, self-motivation, goal setting, organisation, research and knowledge, positive thinking and entrepreneurship.
Over 20 Harrow College students have secured paid Summer internships as part of the Employability Academy. Some have worked for Raw Talent, while others have worked for the 50 biggest organisations in the UK. The Internships are only offered to students who show; dedication in attending all the days, a willingness to learn and be involved, a supportive attitude to other students and PASSION!
"The experience I managed to get by participating the programme cannot compare with anything else. The fact that the course was led by such successful people made me more motivated and even more eager to learn and participate."
