If you live in the West Midlands, are aged 19 or over, unemployed and receiving Universal Credit, Job Seekers allowance or Employment and Support Allowance, you can join on one of our ‘Fast-Track, Job-Readiness’ programmes for FREE and you won’t lose your benefits.


All ‘Fast-Track, Job-Readiness’ programmes are put together with local employers who have ‘live job vacancies’. Each course lasts up to six weeks and is split into three parts:-


PART 1: Pre-Employment Training course to equip you with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours to get a ‘entry-level’ role in a specific area of work


PART 2: Short work experience placement with a local employer to help you understand what it is like to work in a specific job role.


PART 3: An interview for a job in the work you have trained for.


We offer ‘Fast-Track, Job-Readiness’ programmes in work sectors where there are lots of local job vacancies, for example; Adult Care, Mental Health Support Services, Health Care Support, Construction, Customer Service and Sales. However, the number and range of our programmes are always growing as employers keep coming to us with job vacancies, they need filling right now.
