Confidence (questions 1-5)

Build your confidence by volunteering or attending Lambeth's Confidence for Work course. Practise doing job interviews or volunteer.


Communication (questions 6-11)

Are you learning English? Lambeth can help you. See what help is available. Volunteering and joing groups will also help you improve your communication skills.


Administration and Organisation (questions 12-17)

Make lists and use a calendar on your smartphone. Break work down into small tasks. Trello is a useful tool for listing tasks. Create 3 columns: one for your tasks, another for tasks you are doing and a third one for completed tasks.
