New Skill Pods offer accessible employability skills training
One of the great things about HeadsUp is the way in which we’ve been able to adapt to meet the needs of those we work with over the life of the project. As we move into the next phase of grant funding we’ve taken the opportunity to develop a new role to provide even more structure to the employability skills we have been teaching.
Our new Development and Skills Officers have produced a series of sessions designed to help our participants with practical employability skills, such as putting together quality CVs or using IT equipment for accessing employment. These sessions run alongside the great work done by our Peer Support Workers and can help people who are looking to work or volunteer, or even those who just need some support to start job searching.
We’ve already helped participants to choose direction, set up email accounts, build CVs, and to search and apply for jobs. With a model of delivery that takes us all over Essex, we’re proud to be able to bring our sessions to a place near you. We can run these either on a one-to-one basis or in small groups- whatever is most suitable.
If you are already part of the project and are interested in taking part then speak to your Peer Support Worker, if you are not yet part of HeadsUp then why not give us a call to find out how we might be able to help you too!
