Work Programme - provides support for you if you are out of work for more than 6 months. We can help you if you are disabled or have a health condition too. Employment Coaches offer similar services to the Generation North East Programme. To join this programme you need to be referred to us from Jobcentre Plus.
One of the things people feel most acutely when out of work is isolation. It’s easy to feel that you’re facing this all alone. Job clubs, where you can meet and be supported by experts as you search, have been very successful in helping people find permanent work. We focus on helping you to prepare your CV and how to create compelling cover letters. And we can help give your confidence a boost as you get ready for interviews. We also run budget sessions to help you cope on benefits until you are able to get back into work. Our experts are always at hand to help you make the most of opportunities as they come along.
Here is the job club programme:
