Shiregreen residents who want to take the next step up the career ladder can take part in new Aim High Achieve More workshops this New Year.

Free training programme for those already in work

Funded by Sanctuary Housing, local charity SOAR has organised the free training programme for local people who are already in work and would like to progress in their careers. There will be CV and covering letter sessions, advice on the current labour market and interview and job search techniques.

Advice

Participants will also be able to link up with specialist Sanctuary staff to receive advice about welfare benefits.

“Support is invaluable”

Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, Melanie King, said: “This course highlights the important fact that even when local people are in employment, support is still invaluable to help them progress and achieve their ambitions.

“The New Year is an ideal time to start chasing up new opportunities and I would urge Shiregreen workers to take advantage of this free course that could give them a real career boost in 2018.”

“Thanks to our partnership with Sanctuary”

Guy Weston from SOAR added: “We want to make sure that we offer a whole range of employment and training opportunities for all Shiregreen residents, whether or not they’re already in work. It’s thanks to our partnership with Sanctuary that we’ve been able to organise these workshops.”

Join in

The Aim High Achieve More workshops will run every Wednesday for four weeks from 24 January 2018, 6-8pm at Shiregreen United Reformed Church, Valentine Crescent. For more information, contact Sofeena at SOAR on 0114 213 4074.

This project is funded by Sanctuary’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
