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, Free Access to our Gym, Health and Nutritional Advice, 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.
