Free training courses
We work with partnering organisations to offer you a range of free training courses, including the Workers Educational Association (WEA). Our courses have included basic and more advanced Computer Skills training and CV writing. We’ll keep you updated on any future training that we’ll be offering.
Brighter Futures Fund
As training is one of the key factors to finding employment, we also offer funding to help you pursue your individual training needs. The aim is for this training to help you into employment. Our Brighter Futures Fund enables you to apply for up to £1,000 to use towards a course. Examples of courses where this money has been used includes beauty salon training and accountancy training.
