Gateway to Employment Project
Date published: 23 March 2012
Bangladesh Association and Community Project (BACP) in Rochdale is launching its ‘Gateway to Employment’ project with the help of funding from European Social Fund and the Skills Funding Agency.
The project will assist the unemployed and economically inactive people in improving their employability skills and confidence through bite sized sessions. This will involve three strands of activities covering i) employment skills, ii) basic IT and iii) ESOL, each over a 15 week period of 2 hours per week. No fee will be charged.
The project aims to enrol individuals who are unemployed and looking for work to help improve their skills thus giving them the ability and confidence to find opportunities, submit applications and face interviews.
However for many within the BME communities, lack of literacy and basic IT skills are major hindrances. Therefore, the separate IT and ESOL strands are for those adjudged requiring help on literacy and/IT to enhance their basic skills on these. The whole chunk of 15 weeks will be repeated over the year with new learners.
The programme will start in April. Those interested are encouraged to contact the centre (01706 860 349) and book their places. An initial assessment will be carried out for every interested learner.
If you are unemployed and looking for work, the Gateway to Employment Programme is designed to build your employability skills and confidence and improve your prospects of employment.
Join any or all of the following sessions delivered by professional, qualified tutors:
