Employability workshops cover many of the skills and information an individual needs when they start looking for a job.
These short group sessions are good fun and help with dispelling myths and gaining hard facts. Even for those sceptics who have heard it all before, they are tailored to group needs and can often provide that extra bit of information that will help you.
Employability workshops are a great opportunity for individuals to join in a group activity instead of struggling alone.
- Job search
- CV preparation and development
- Application forms
- How to prepare for interviews
- Overcoming barriers to work and keeping that ideal job
People taking these courses will find that they provide much of the knowledge and understanding needed to support them in achieving a nationally recognised employability award. If you think this would interest you and you would like to get a qualification out of your quest for work, ask about enrolling on this course when attending workshops.
YOUemployIT are Workwise's free employability training courses for people who are seeing a GP or a Link Worker about mental health issues, but who do not necessarily have a care coordinator and/or may have already been signed off by their Community Mental Health Team. These courses are designed for primary care mental health patients who are not eligible for secondary care funding, but who need support to return to work and improve skills. They take the form of workshops which are held at Workwise's Hospital Road site in Bury St Edmunds, and can lead to a City & Guilds Employability qualification, covering searching for a job, applying for work, preparing for interviews, and interview skills. There are also opportunities to accompany these employability courses with IT training, which can lead to a nationally recognised IT qualification covering a choice of 3 different applications aimed to equip individuals with the IT user skills needed for full participation in employment and society.
