Welcome to Achieve!
Please find attached some Frequently Asked Questions and information on your first appointment.
What do you do?
Achieve is a bespoke progression project, designed to help you get where you would like to be. We are a project with a difference: helping you figure out your goals, build your confidence, obtain qualifications and find your next steps. Whether you want to get into college or higher education, complete a traineeship or paid apprenticeship, or just get into employment, Achieve is the place to be. We also offer help with CV writing and improving, interview skills and courses to build your skills. We can help signpost you with really useful careers information and guidance – helping you to see what your next steps need to be, and building your confidence along the way. We also offer a whole host of fun, exciting team-building activities, depending on what you’d like to do.
Achieve are aware that COVID-19 may be stressful for you, so we are committed to helping you to find employment or education in a way which keeps you safe in keeping with the current situation. At present, you can work with us remotely during these difficult times.
Where are you based?
Ordinarily, we are based in Hull City Centre, directly opposite the BBC Building and Queens Gardens Fountains. Our address is:
The Achieve Project,
The Warren Centre,
Queens Dock Chambers,
47-49 Queens Dock Avenue,
Our office is on the very top floor, so if you head up the stairs you can’t miss us. However due to the current situation with CODID-19 we are now working remotely. We can still do almost all we usually do but just in a different way, including email support, online learning, or digital/phone appointments to suit your needs!
Who do you work with?
Our funding means we can support anyone who meets all 3 of these criteria: You must be: aged 15-29; living in a Hull postcode (HU1-HU9); and not in employment, education or training.
Do I have to bring anything?
If you have any ID, such as a passport, please bring that along. If you also have a letter showing your address (such as from receiving a benefit, as doctor's letter, bill or bank letter) that would also be very helpful! If you would like a CV looking at, please email it or bring it along with you.
During lockdown, we may ask to see a copy or photograph of this ID via email.
We don’t sell or use your information: this is to verify who you are for our funding!
What should I wear?
Not Crocs. Seriously though, wear whatever you like. Achieve is informal, and our appointments are chats as oppose to interviews, so come in whatever you normally wear. During lockdown you can even wear your pyjamas if you wish! We’ll never know…
What if I can’t make it, or I have more questions?
Just let us know if you need to move your appointment. You can get in touch via:
Call: 01482 219357
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (or email whoever your worker is)
Mobile (call or text): 07455455851.
Facebook Messenger: @achieveprojecthull
Do I have to work in a group?
Nope. You can work however you feel is best: in groups if you want to, one to one, or however you choose. Our office can get busy, so if you have any additional needs or would like a quiet appointment space just let us know.
