#SkillsForLife – Employment Training

Under-25s have seen the biggest rise in unemployment during lockdown.  Evidence has shown that the percentage increase of people aged 16-24 who have lost their jobs during the pandemic is more than double that of those aged over 25; and this age group are also the first to have been put on the Governments furlough scheme.  


Edmonton Community Partnership (ECP), with funding from the Education & Skills Funding Agency, and the European Social Fund, aims to combat this through our #SkillsForLife programme offering work skills, training, work experience/placements and personal development and mentoring. 


As part of ECP’s lifelong learning strategy, the #SkillsForLife project will give 20 unemployed and disadvantaged young adults aged between 16 and 24 years of age, who are NEET, and live in Edmonton/Enfield the tools and opportunities needed to enable them back into the labour market. 


Candidates should have a keen interest in the hospitality/catering or leisure/personal training industry, with a passion and drive to get back into work. 


Participants will follow a specialised training/mentoring programme through Work Works Training Solutions (WWTS) with a specified outcome in order to improve their employability skills, soft skills, develop sector specific knowledge, improve health & wellbeing, build confidence, knowledge, and skills to actively search and apply for employment. 


There are limited spaces on this programme.
