  • personal skills analysis and action planning
  • confidence building courses
  • preparing for Employment qualifications
  • brushing up on English, Maths and IT skills, and opportunities to gain current qualifications, including functional skills in English and Maths

Each of the Work Zones offers weekly Job Clubs - the Job Clubs run as a drop in, and cover such things as:

  • one-to-one job search activities
  • group work job search activities
  • customer cross job search activities
  • CV writing sessions
  • application form completion sessions
  • letter writing
  • online application forms

As well as having free access to computers for job searching and applications, those registering with the Work Zones will also have the opportunity to work with an employment mentor who can support them on a one to one basis in their search for work.
