‘Routes to Work’ is a programme for the newly unemployed. Free to those aged 19+ and looking for work. Help with your CV, interview skills, finding a job online and assistance with application forms.

The Routes To Work programme also seeks to address some of the issues that offenders/ex-offenders encounter when returning to work or training, such as mental health and wellbeing, lack of skills and practical obstacles. By formulating an individualised and bespoke pathway based on initial assessments, we will provide participants with the skills and support they need to help them get off the carousel of reoffending and break down their personal barriers to employment/training – helping them believe in their own potential.

Routes to Work is funded by East Coast College
