If you are looking to enter employment or would like to expand your CV, come along to one of our Employability courses.


Our Employability courses aim to equip you with the skills that you need to enter employment, or to expand on your existing skills to widen your employment opportunities. As well as equipping you with skills that you will use at work, these courses will also help you to identify your personal strengths and  increase your confidence when job searching.


Some examples of what we offer:

  • At our 'Gateway to your Future' courses we will support you to explore your interests, aspirations and skills. You will discover which careers best suit you and explore future opportunities for learning and work. We can also help you to evaluate your options and plan for the future.
  • 'Confidence for Work' – These sessions take place in small, friendly groups and are perfect for anyone looking to develop their confidence to find a job they will love. You will learn tips and tricks on how to manage everyday work situations, and develop your customer service and communication skills.
  • 'Moving Forward' is an informative five day course ran in partnership with the Job Centre to help learners move forward with their employment journey. Over the five days you will identify your hidden strengths, and learn about time management, budgeting and team building skills through fun and interactive exercises. You will refresh your knowledge of CV writing, interview techniques and filling out application forms. We can help you to set some achievable goals and explore your opportunities for the future. To book a place or find out of you are eligible for 'Moving Forward', please contact your work coach. 


Feedback from learners who attended our recent 'The Dragon's Apprentice' employability course:

“I learnt so much and it gave me the confidence to complete my business plan and get it accepted for a government grant to start my business.”

“The programme has provided clarity about the process of starting a business and where to find further information on processes and funding. I feel so much more confident about the process of establishing a business and setting targets and realistic timeframes to achieve these goals.”

“This programme really meant a lot to me. It might change people’s lives forever if we make good use of the course.”
