What is the Employability Skills Programme?

Employability Skills Programme

The Employability Skills Programme has been created to help unemployed adults get into employment and stay there.

If you’re unemployed you can access a range of support and training, including quality work experience with local companies, expert help and advice on preparing for work, and training to develop your essential skills.

The programme is also open to offenders in the community.

What’s in it for me?

Everyone is different. That’s why the programme has been designed to fit around your needs and cover the things that matter to you most. By getting involved you could:

  • Create an eye-catching CV
  • Learn practical new skills
  • Get a qualification
  • Gain quality work experience
  • Boost your confidence
  • Increase your earning potential
  • Enhance your job search
  • Improve your interview technique
  • Get a full-time job
