Supported Pathway to Employment

Following the success of our Supported Pathway to Employment project, SILC is pleased to announce that we will be running another of these courses!

‘Providing a supported pathway to employment for people with a disability or long term health condition’

Tailored, supported programme for people who have had a long period of unemployment or have particular challenges or barriers with returning to work. Covering:

  • Opportunity to meet others in a similar situation
  • Confidence and self-esteem building
  • Managing your health condition/disability
  • Identifying transferable skills
  • Preparing for work skills
  • Career guidance
  • Individual employment pathway support

The SPE course is facilitated by SILC’s Community Employment Specialist, Dave Smith. Dave has run these courses previously using his own experiences of living and working with a disability.

This SPE programme will consist of 4 training days (including buffet lunch), 4 tailored 1:1 sessions and 4 group/employer presentation sessions during the first 12 weeks and a further 12 week ‘keep in touch’ period for additional individual support.
