We work closely with a large number of employers to ensure our courses include visits to work places, talks or mock interviews to help support your job search activities. We can also provide financial support to help you access our courses (excluding those delivered by partner organisations) including help with childcare cost and travel costs up to £10 a week.

As part of our commitment to helping you find work, students have access to our Job Club ‘drop in’ sessions where they have free access to postage, telephone and IT/printing. We provide a job search service, posting details of relevant vacancies for students on our intranet and Facebook site while also using our employer contacts to keep you informed of any job opportunities via your tutor. We also keep in touch after you have successfully completed a course to see how you are progressing towards work and offer further support and we will invite you to our exclusive jobs fairs for current and former students.
