New Work Club starts next week
SIC’s Adult Learning service and members of the Skills, Learning and Employability Partnership are launching a new Work Club on Wednesday (13 February). The weekly drop-in sessions will help people get back into employment, into their first job or to change the kind of work they do. There will also be specialist support available for job seekers.
Adult Learning’s Team Leader, Nancy Heubeck says: “The work club will take place every Wednesday afternoon from 1.00pm to 3.00pm at Islesburgh Complex, and will include help and advice on CV writing and interview techniques.
“We’ll have free computer access to help folk search for vacancies, we can help with setting up email accounts and provide guidance on learning and volunteering opportunities.
“If you need help with job searching, checking over application forms, finding the best websites and completing online applications please call along. You’ll also get the chance to meet other people looking for work, build new contacts and share experiences.”
Councillor Vaila Wishart, Chair of the Education and Families Committee, adds: “I’m pleased that this free service is now available and I’m sure that anyone who is currently looking for work will find the support and services provided by the new work club of huge benefit.
“With an experienced staff on hand to help, and the chance to gain experience using up-to-date IT facilities in a friendly and supportive environment, I would encourage anyone who needs this kind of support to drop by.”
