YCF Young Persons Network Meeting


The YCF Young Persons network meeting takes place on the 24th October at Vickers Laboratories in Leeds.

The group is for young people aged between 18-35 including recent apprentices and graduates. The group, which is led by industry, aims to facilitate fantastic networking opportunities, provide a platform to learn, experience different sectors, to share ideas and provide project opportunities to support the next generation.

Rachel, host and a member of our group will be talking about her company Vickers Laboratories plus we have David Shindler who will be covering “learning to leap” his talk is outlined below:

We all need to learn to leap again and again in our working lives – developing new skills, new knowledge and adapting our mindset and behaviors for changing personal and business circumstances. Because the world does not stand still.

Many people later in life say they wished they had known more when they were younger. You can avoid that trap by empowering yourself early on and navigating your career with confidence and skill.  Gain insight earlier to reduce the disappointment of hindsight!

Many people focus on technical skills without embracing the mindset, attitudes and so-called soft skills that are so vital in working life. Soft skills are tough! And they are transferable.

This workshop will give you a brilliant understanding of how to progress your career and start to develop your leadership skills – you don’t need the title to start and lead!

The event is free for members of YCF & CATCH and £45+at for non-members.  Members please email lisa@ycf.org.uk to book and non-members can book and pay online at – https://www.ycf.org.uk/product-page/ycf-young-person-group
