Free employability course comes to Willington

26 September 2017

A free County Durham employment project, that has already helped 25 people back on the road to work, is heading to Willington in search of its latest recruits.

 The Stepping Stones to Employment project, led by County Durham Housing Group and The Auckland Project, is designed to boost confidence, develop new skills and enhance employability.

After running successful courses in Coundon and Bishop Auckland, the programme,  funded by NE Procurement, has moved to Willington, starting on Thursday, 19 October.

More than 90% of those enrolled on the first course found either work or further education and training within weeks of completion.

Emma Milgate, from Evenwood, completed the last Stepping Stones to Employment course.

She said: “The course has given me the confidence I needed to apply for jobs and go to interviews.

“It was really useful to attend a college open day and through Stepping Stones I’ve started an apprenticeship at The Auckland Project.

Enrolment for the 15 places on the Willington Stepping Stones to Employment programme is open until Wednesday, 18 October.

The ten week course, which is free to attend, will be held at Dovedale Avenue Community Centre with sessions from 10am – 2.30pm.

All participants will have the opportunity of a practice interview at The Auckland Project.

For more information, or to apply, contact Sean Robson at County Durham Housing Group on 0191 349 7753 or training@cdhg.co.uk
