There are #NoLimits
to what You can Achieve

Are you age 16 to 25, living in Gloucestershire, and looking for work? Whatever your circumstances, Commercial Foundation’s #NoLimits Programme can help you get the skills you need to thrive, while you work as a volunteer at WE.DO. Print. If you’d like to talk to us, you can call us on 01242 894 250.

Sometimes it can seem like things will never change, no matter how much you want them to or how hard you try. Commercial Foundation works with young people who desperately want to turn their lives around in a practical, real working environment.

Every Journey
Starts with a Single Step

Our #NoLimits Plus Programme is designed for young people who are struggling to move forward. That might be because of personal circumstances, challenges that you face, or for another reason altogether.

We understand that there can be lots of reasons that make it difficult to find the right course or job, and this can cause you to hold back. Don’t hold back any longer!

With our help and guidance, you’ll be better able to find a placement where you can feel comfortable and do well. Call us or register for our #NoLimits Plus Programme today.

Creating Success

Every young person who comes to Commercial Foundation has a different story to tell. But they all have one thing in common. Somehow, somewhere things started going wrong.

We understand how hard it can be to get back on track. But we also know that it’s a whole lot easier if you believe in yourself, develop skills and have support to help you to find – and keep – a job.

Our eight week #NoLimits programme involves training, mentoring and support while you work voluntarily at WE DO. Print. You’ll have the opportunity for work experience in different departments, from design and production to marketing and finance so you can find out what interests you and what you’re good at. You’ll also receive CV writing help and job search support, enabling you to move one step closer to where you want to be. Most importantly, you’ll learn from people who have been through similar challenges to you – and come out the other side.

Work Experience

We’ll arrange a work experience placement for you

As well as gaining real work experience volunteering in WE.DO. Print, we’ll arrange for you to go to another place of work. This block of work experience is usually for about two weeks. Our volunteers love getting first-hand experience of another workplace because they are taking a step forward into the world of work.

The #NoLimits Programme is aimed at preparing you for work. And usually, before an employer will offer you a job, they will ask you if you have work experience. If you can say you have work experience, you can prove that you know how to behave in a work place, and an employer will be more interested in hiring you.

Depending on where you go and what you want to do, you’ll watch and take part in the work that is being done there. When we arrange your work experience, we’ll find a setting that you’re happy with, and we’ll support you every step of the way.

More than 86% of the young people we work with go on to secure employment, futher education or training. The results are impressive. But if you want something really inspiring, take a look at some of the young people’s individual stories.
