The path to employment

Ready to Roll Programme

This is a two day programme for people aged over 25. Whether you are a parent or were previously caring for a loved one; this programme is for anyone returning to work after a break. Getting back into work can be a bit scary, especially if you’re not sure what jobs are available for people with your skills. We find sometimes people just need a bit of guidance to know they’re on the right track.
