CPO currently run a range of employability projects aimed at those looking for work aged from 18 and upwards. The services we offer include: Work Experience Opportunities, Careers Advice and General IAG (Information, Advice and Guidance), Support with getting into Education/Training, Confidence Building, Employability Passport, ICT Training and the unique chance to get involved with our Magazine, VOXX.
All work is aimed at getting our clients closer to employment or further education; this can be done through improving their interview skills, giving them some help with their job searching, or increasing their confidence and work readiness through regular social activity and an improved sense of purpose.
By working with those hardest to reach, and the long term unemployed CPO is taking part in a national approach to tackling the root causes of poverty, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth.
Our current employability projects are:
Building Better Opportunities
The BBO programme is designed for unemployed individuals aged 25 and over to help improve their life prospects. Each client has the opportunity to access our fantastic facilities as well as receive help and advice. Support is offered on a one-to-one basis where needed, as well as in groups. We run both male and female group sessions every week on Thursday and Friday mornings.
The BBO project is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund.
Wecan is all about supporting individuals to build up their confidence and learn the skills required to obtain work or further training. We run specialised female and male only sessions, as well as mixed groups. By the end of the programme you should have increased confidence, feelings of empowerment, positive life chances and be on a path to success.
The Community Grants project is part-funded by the European Social Fund.
