Dale & Valley Homes has joined forces with regional charity Auckland Castle Trust to introduce ‘Stepping Stones’ – a new service to help people gain the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the workplace.
Two-hour sessions will be held over a 20-week period, starting on Friday, 3 February, where residents can access free support around applying for jobs, how to perform well at interview stage, entering the workforce, as well as improving practical and social skills.
Kimberley Batey, Community Training Project Co-ordinator, who has worked on the project at Dale & Valley Homes said: “Stepping Stones has been developed to help people feel confident and prepared to re-enter the workforce or find a job for the very first time.”
Friday, 3 February’s introductory session will take place between 11am and 3pm.
For more information and to reserve a place call Kimberley on 01388 770 974 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help to attend the course, including transport and free childcare, can be arranged.
