This programme came to an end in September 2016
We delivered a Lone Parent Employability Programme for the South East Wales Jobcentre Plus District across eight local authority areas and sixteen Jobcentres. Delivered to two-hundred lone parents (all referrals came directly from JCP Advisers), each individual accessed the programme for 20 hours each week with access to 1-2-1 intensive support, employability workshops and support into employment. Claimants were also supported to achieve the City and Guilds Level 1 Introductory Award in Employability Skills, a nationally recognised qualification.
We had three Employability Tutors based in Cardiff, Ebbw Vale and Caerphilly. The programme was delivered in a combination of established three Working Links hub offices and a range of community outreach venues, such as community centres, libraries, Jobcentres and Town/Community Council venues in Cardiff, Newport, Vale of Glamorgan, Caerphilly, Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent, Merthyr and Monmouthshire.
