Personalised support and Development plan
With each person we will plan with them a Support and Development plan to explore what they want to achieve in the future and the barriers to their development. We will look at their skills and what they may have done at home and create a CV suitable for the UK market. This is a one-to-one session where all information will be kept strictly confidential.
FREE Accredited Training

We run a variety of courses at different levels. Initially we will look to see what levels you are currently achieving so we can enter you for the right course. Currently we provide:
Beginners Computer course: If you are keen to learn how to use a computer and the internet
Train to Care: Learning in the classroom accompanied with practical placements providing a solid platform for the student to enter into the care industry.
Variety of other subjects: Please ask for further details.
Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteering is an important part of looking for a potential job. You gain personal satisfaction and experience and meet new people! It is also vital to gain a potential positive UK reference.
One-to-one mentoring
Our one-to-one mentoring program enables individuals to feel confident and happy enough to take up employment or further training in the UK. With this support we can help individuals; fill out application forms, higher education application forms and support with Job centre documentation.

For any enquires or a referral document, please contact the Project Coordinator & Mentor.
