Job Club resumed
Tuesday 5th September
(Note the New Day!)
Roger Green, who recently retired from Baptist Ministry has visited the Job Club and agreed to take on a Volunteer Role. We have also discussed the potential for him presenting some training relating to Budgeting.
We have also been joined by a student from Blessed Trinity who is doing her work experience with the church for the next 5 weeks, hopefully she will find her time with us beneficial.
Sadly the group have lost Keith who helped members with accessing the computers. We thank him for all his help, not forgetting the treats and Easter Eggs he provided for all group members.
Job Centre Plus and the Job Club have a good working relationship which are beneficial to all the groups members, recently myself and Roger were invited to attend a workshop on the introduction of Universal Credit (U.C.). The information received was helpful in alleviating some of the members concerns. This link also means they direct people in our direction and we frequently have new people attending the Job Club.
We have had a recent visit by Joe from Bootstrap who talked about their service to the group. He also spoke to individuals, looking at the member’s own specific needs.
On 12th April newer members of the group completed Steps To Employment Training aimed at helping them prepare for work. The course covered looking for the right type of work, completing C.V.'s, having mock interviews and working as part of a team. See photo opposite of them receiving their certificates.
Visiting Speakers are being arranged to cover First Aid, Volunteering, Universal Credit and Budgeting.
The group are developing friendship which are supportive to each other. So there has been a request for some social time together so it is hoped to plan a trip in the summer - watch this space for what is ultimately decided on and possibly photos.
