We have launched a new project, "Routes"
We are helping local people to develop their career prospects and get back into work with our new project, Routes.
Routes is a project developed by Landsker and backed by WCVA to support those aged 25 and over who are currently furthest away from the job market to take steps towards employment. The project, which is based in Carmarthenshire, will support people throughout Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion through the provision of career support, volunteering opportunities and free online training courses.
Landsker Technical Director Dave Selwyn said ‘It has been a difficult two years for us all given the impact of Coronavirus but for some this has been heightened due to the struggles of many industries and as a result many job losses. Now is an opportune moment for those in need of work to retrain and develop themselves to re-enter the job market equipped with new skills and that is what we hope to help them achieve through Routes.’
Sarah Cooper, Employability Officer at Routes added ‘Time out of work can impact people in a number of ways and whilst financial support is of great benefit the ultimate goal for these people is to get back into work, to provide for themselves and their families and become financially independent. Through our varied course offerings service users can choose to improve existing skills and qualifications or to completely start from scratch and train in something altogether different. Beyond this our aim is to support people by offering them the opportunity to prepare for the job market again with CV support, interview techniques and a friendly face for support and advice.’
Sarah is available for weekly face to face meetings at a number of hubs throughout the three counties as well as online and telephone support.
