Welcome to the Twenty Second bulletin
This week we are all about the new Virtual WISH Workshops
We are holding live workshops on a wide variety of topics, many of them requested by you, where we will share some basic principles to help you with your journey into work.
The workshops will be hosted on Zoom and can be accessed from a PC, laptop, Smartphone, iPad or Tablet so we hope that as many people as possible will be able to join us.
Signing up is really easy – just click on the link next to the sessions that you would like to attend and it will take you through to the registration page. Everything will be emailed to you and we will send out instructions and reminders so that you don’t forget. In order to get the most out of the subject we will be sending a pre-session prompt sheet to help you to think about the topic and afterwards we will also send you some ideas on how you can apply the learning to your own situation.
Below are the links to register for these forthcoming workshops.

Have a look and see if you missed any or have another go at one you have tried before and see if your answer is different this time.
