Many people in the UK find themselves struggling to find employment, with redundancy and closure affecting many people. We at DISC believe that this national problem needs to be approached at an individual level.
The goal of our Support into Employment and Training service is to assist people in identifying and removing the barriers preventing them from finding employment. The skills we teach will not only enable people to do this, but will give them the tools they need to maintain a successful career.
No matter the circumstances surrounding unemployment, we have the expertise to share and the advice to impart that can make a difference.
DISC has a wide base of knowledge and we can give support to people who find that other social problems are preventing them from finding work or re-entering education.
We strive to find placements and volunteer positions, giving people the opportunity to learn new skills and improve old ones. We believe that volunteering can help to strengthen a CV and convince employers of a person’s value and commitment when applying for a job.
Work placements and volunteer opportunities can be hugely beneficial to people struggling to find employment. Skills can be learned that are valuable in any work-place and volunteers will often find the confidence and experience they need to be successful in their career.
We help clients with:-
- Advice on CV writing
- Accredited training courses
- Setting up or providing Work placements
- Finding and providing opportunities for Volunteering
- Teaching interview techniques
- Basic skills training
- Programmes of support tailored towards the individual
