INSPIRE runs across Kent and Medway and works to support our residents to access employment, training and skills and access to the internet. One of the programmes we run through our partners in local areas is ‘Work In Progress’. People attend over four informal and supportive sessions and receive advice on writing a CV and applying to jobs, volunteering, work experience and interview skills. The support doesn’t stop there with regular catch ups taking place between the trainer and participant. This has proved so successful that in Tunbridge Wells alone that 13 people have secured employment in 2015-2016 over the four courses which were delivered.
One of the participants who has just become employed said
“Thank you so much for all of your help during the workshop really helped to build up my confidence and learn new tips for my cv and interviews”
