Do your Personal Best
Personal Best is a training and volunteering programme for people who are not in work or education, but would like to gain opportunities to volunteer in their community and at the same time improve their skills and chances of getting a job.
Personal Best aims to encourage people into training to boost their confidence, and volunteer to gain work experience, using the excitement surrounding the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. All graduates of Personal Best who successfully apply for a Games Time Volunteer role will be guaranteed an interview.
London 2012 will depend on up to 70,000 volunteers to make sure the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games run smoothly and successfully. Volunteers will carry out a range of essential tasks, from spectator services to language services and medical care. It is hoped that up to 10% of these volunteers will be graduates of Personal Best.
You can find out what’s involved and whether you are eligible online, as well as other skills and employment initiatives.
