Equipping people with the skills to feel more job ready and to achieve their employment goals.
This enables our clients to improve their quality of life, security, confidence and independence. We do this through tailored advice and support, and work skills activities.
Please note that we cannot provide support regarding setting up a business.
Employment Skills Programme
Our new and improved Employment Skills Programme is starting in January 2023. The programme is made up of four separate programmes, each designed to support people aged 16+ at different stages of their employment journeys:
- The Booster Programme: 3 – 6 months unemployed
Six sessions of practical, hands-off support for clients with a clear goal-direction
- The Refresh Programme: 6 – 12 months unemployed
Nine sessions of reflective, practical support to help clients identify their next employment steps
- The Spark Programme: 12 + months unemployed
A combination of two group sessions and 12 one-to-ones to provide intensive, holistic support to increase job readiness
- The Enhance Programme: Employed and in receipt of means-tested benefits
Six sessions of practical, hands-off support for clients in employment who want to become more financially stable
Whether you’ve only recently become unemployed, have been unemployed for over a year or find yourself in employment but financially unstable, we can help you build the skills and confidence to get that job or training you’ve been waiting for.
Get in touch to find out which of our four programmes is right for you. Email your name, how long you’ve been unemployed for and your contact number to email@example.com, give us a call on 020 7221 8810 or come to our reception to speak to a member of staff.
If you are employed, please confirm that you receive income-related benefits support, as we can only provide support to those who do.
If you have a quick employment query that you would like to speak about with an advisor, we also run a drop-in session every Wednesday from 12 pm – 1 pm. These one-off sessions provide a space for you to receive advice on your quick queries, and are ideal for topics such as support with CVs, cover letters or interview preparation.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a slot.
Interview Skills Day
Interview Skills Day offers a fantastic chance for people to practice and develop interview skills, to familiarise themselves with the interview process, and to increase overall confidence.
Participants will take part in interactive activities designed to develop key interview skills, such as:
- Creative thinking
- Presentation skills
- Framing experience and using STAR
They will also get the opportunity to have a 1:1 mock interview and gain feedback.
In the past, we’ve run events with amazing corporate volunteers including Dunnhumby, Wyelands Bank, Smart Works, Johnson & Johnson and Javelin Group.
I really liked the way we were supported in small groups and given time to reflect, practice and share. Also the way the session was delivered was amazing.
[My volunteer] was fantastic and made me feel at ease and worthy of gaining employment, which I was not feeling.
I feel more confidence of how to answer the questions at an interview and feeling more prepared.Feedback from previous participants
