Education, Employment & Training


We know that applying for jobs and courses can be really daunting – so we are here to help!

There are loads of college and training courses open to anyone, regardless of your age or qualifications and plenty of jobs, apprenticeships, and volunteering opportunities for people with all levels of experience.

We will help you work out which options are best for you, and how you can work towards them. We will also give you all the practical help you might need, like filling in application forms, making phone calls, sending off your CV, or preparing for an interview.

We can help with anything you might need to get into a job or education like; bus passes, stationary, work clothes and equipment – just ask.

If you don’t feel quite ready to get into education, work or training we will help you build up your skills and confidence to get there. There are loads of ways that you can get involved with 1625ip that will be great for your confidence and CV, like volunteering with us.

Ask your Support Worker to get in touch with the Education, Employment and Training team or complete the form at the bottom of the page and we will be in touch with how we can help.
