Pathway to employment

Supported by our employment team based in Kendal, students are encouraged to build on skills that can support them towards greater independence including gaining employment.

Typically, the areas of support will include motivation and confidence building, job searching and employability skills, health and safety in the workplace and team working.

There are also visits to places of employment so that students can see these skills in the workplace and put their learning into context.

Finding paid employment

Customers at Right2Work can benefit from a range of support from our team, activities which also include employer support and training, job coaching/in work support, looking and applying for work as well as benefits support and advice. You can find more information on each of our programmes below:
