Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Job Club are starting a new course on October 8 and are looking for new members.
‘The Job Club is aimed at people who have been out of work a long time rather than between jobs.’ said Suzanna Mitchell, CAP Job Club Manager. ‘But some members have been out of work for three months and have attended and found it useful.’
The course starts at Foundation levels with subjects such as setting goals, identifying what you are trying to achieve and how to get there. ‘We also cover motivation, personal strengths, how to succeed in interviews, what employers are looking for. We look at volunteering and additional training and how to thrive in the workplace.’
The course is open to anyone of any ability and Suzanna has helped people who have had no qualifications to a PhD graduate who admitted he learned something new every week.
If you are out of work at the moment or know someone who is Suzanna would be pleased to talk to you and discuss how the job club can help you.
CAP also offer debt counselling and money management advice.
CAP Job Club, money management courses and debt counselling are all free services and available to anyone regardless of religious beliefs. They ensure that nobody receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, nationality, religion, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation or disability.
Suzanna can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 07570
Courses are held at Woodley Hill House, Eastcourt Avenue, Reading, RG6 1HH.
