RECRUITS WANTED FOR FREE EMPLOYABILITY COURSE Friday, 11 August 2017
A free County Durham employment project, that has already helped 25 people back on the road to work, is now seeking its next round of recruits.
The Stepping Stones to Employment project, led by County Durham Housing Group and Auckland Castle Trust, is designed to boost confidence, develop new and transferable skills and enhance employability in a fun and easy way.
More than 90% of those enrolled on the first course found either work or further education and training within weeks of completion.
Enrolment for the September course, which will run at Auckland Youth and Community Centre, Woodhouse Close, Bishop Auckland, is open now – with applications closing on September 4.
There are 15 places currently available for the next round of the 10-week Stepping Stones to Employment programme, with everyone taking part being offered the chance to gain skills and qualifications in areas such as health and safety, first aid, food hygiene, event planning and computing.
The course, which is free to attend, will also focus on improving self-confidence and interview skills.
At the end of the Stepping Stones course, all participants will have the opportunity to use their new skills in a practice interview at regional charity, Auckland Castle Trust.
The Stepping Stones to Employment project is funded by NE Procurement. For more information, or to apply, please contact Sean Robson at County Durham Housing Group on 0191 349 7753 or [email protected]
