We provide you with free training courses which range from learning to cook on a budget, to First Aid, to gaining a nationally recognised qualification in a variety of topics. Topics include Health and Social care, Business Administration and Young people’s mental health for example.
We also offer lots of opportunities for you if you’re a younger resident, such as our Tuition Plus programme which prepares year 5 students for secondary school and the transfer test. If you’re 15-18 you can also benefit from work experience at our solicitors, Blake Morgan. To find out more about all of these opportunities, register for IMPACT.
We can provide you with springboard grants through our Thriving Communities Fund. The grant provides up to £300 to go towards opportunities for training, education, employment and wellbeing, and have been awarded for things like driving lessons, work equipment, swimming lessons and digital devices.
We also run a weekly Job Club which is open to the local community, where our teams are on hand to help you find and apply for jobs or training. The club is part of the Advice Hub, meaning other agencies are available to give advice on subjects such as debt management and homelessness. They also hold regular Job Fairs where local employers are invited to exhibit.
