- Initial Assessment - One to one meeting to determine the appropriateness of the programme for you and to discuss your interests and career aspirations
- Training Needs Assessment – A detailed assessment is carried out to understand current skill levels and training needs.
- Job searching – We provide one to one support with job searching and applications, and preparing for work.
- Employment Gained - We will carry out a detailed job analysis with the employer to fully understand what the job and working environment entails. We will support your induction and first few shifts to help you settle into the job. We can also support you with applications for ‘Access to Work’ funding and manage your individual returns.
- Independent Employment - We will fade our support once you are suitably trained and potentially offer further support if needed in the future
