Structured attendance for 3 to 6 months, trainees learn a host of transferable practical skills, combined with increased confidence and self-esteem.Trainees work in all the diverse aspects of our business and are also offered support with interview skills and applications etc.
We aim that 96% of trainees will leave us fully prepared for paid part time or full time work or sustained volunteering.
Why they need our service
Unemployment is high. Many people require sensitive structured and interactive support to gain/regain the confidence and motivation to enter/re-enter the paid employment market.
Many of our delegates have long term MH or other disabilities.Some delegates come to us from the MH forensic system.We also support young unemployed people .
It is difficult for many to gain employment but our customers face further difficulties and often stigma and disrimination. We aim to level out the playing field.
Plan and expected results
We have an excellent track record of delivering our objectives which can be backed up by testimonials and case studies from former trainees.
Many have left us to become paid employees,mothers valued volunteers in their community.We have employed several trainees who have gone on to pass apprenticeships and move on.one of our Directors of the company was a trainee himself who came to us on the young person work choice programme.
We are very proud of our record in supporting people into work!
