Our Employability programme offers tailored support and sector-based skill development. Our training is delivered in bite size sessions in the community, supporting individuals to gain practical skills and knowledge, in order to increase their chances of finding employment. Each session is tailored to individual learning needs and can be adapted to support learners at various stages of their journey in seeking employment.
Our training is aimed at:
- Improving people’s quality of Life.
- Supporting local workforce and skills development.
- Supporting Digital Inclusion.
- Supporting community sustainability.
Our programmes are flexible, and we offer learners a range of courses within our Employability programme.
The reason for setting up our Employment Agency alongside our Employability programme was to ensure that we provided a direct route into employment. The Agency provides an all-round support package for people entering into employment for the first time or after a long time. We wanted to ensure that through the Agency, people who had participated or accessed our employability training programme, had a real job opportunity at the end of it, by being directly employed by our Agency to enjoy paid employment in a supported environment. Many of our learners who accessed our employability training programmes went on to enjoy paid employment, with ourselves as well as with our clients, with many gaining further promotions.
Joe’s Success Story
Joe was encouraged to join our Employability programme by his support worker. It was difficult at first for Joe to adapt, but with encouragement he was able to get more involved with discussions and interactions with group activities. After the training he expressed an interest in doing administration for as part of his work experience placement. We then offered Joe an opportunity to do his work placement with us mentored by our Recruitment Manager Sinead.
Joe successfully completed the course and received a certificate as well as being nominated for an Award. At the end of his work placement, her the singed up to do Voluntary work with us whilst he was applying for work. Doing volunteering was great for his confidence and personal development and it helped him in so many ways.
Joe successfully gained full time employment, doing something that he wanted to do, working for a Housing Charity in an administration role. Up until he got this job, he was applying for many jobs, easily in the hundreds, with little or no success till now. He has learned to be resilient, and to keep trying especially when things are at their toughest as there are pressures from all angles such as bills, budgets and the work programme and the added stress such things brings when your health and wellbeing are at its lowest. Trying to keep a positive attitude and believe things will improve takes longer than you would expect, but eventually things fall into place.
“If you are thinking of doing the course, I would recommend it and you never know, it could be the thing you need to kick start positive things happening in your life. Thank you all and I wish you all every success in the future”. Joe
“I have mentored Joe and have seen him apply for hundreds of applications and become disheartened from not hearing anything back. Joe’s main goal in life was to get back to work and come off benefits, he has now achieved this. I could not be happier for him”. Sinead
