Getting What You Want: Pathways to Education, Employment and Training - Presenter's Handbook

This handbook is designed for peer educators who will conduct Getting What You Want: Pathways To Employment, Education and Training. It has been designed to be used with the Participant’s Diary and Getting What You Want: A Peer Guide to Facilitating Workshops. Together these resources aim to provide information to young women aged 14 to 25 about how to create their own pathways into employment, education and training. Published in 2004.

This program has been designed by Young Mothers for Young Women, with the aim of creating a training program acknowledging the needs and interests of groups of young pregnant and parenting women. It is therefore designed to be flexible and easy to implement. Getting What You Want: Pathways to Employment, Education and Training is a self-directed program focussing on creating pathways towards returning to either education, employment or training. As a group, participants decide what they want to learn about and how they will learn it.

There are many things in pregnant and parenting young women’s lives that impact on what they do as women and as mothers. This program can help to explore areas of young women’s lives and what they need to be able to do to further education, employment and training opportunities. Getting What You Want: A Peer Guide to Facilitating Workshops should be read before starting any sessions.
