Fri, 2012-10-05 14:29 The Brandwood Centre received the excellent news that they have been awarded over £100,000 from the Big Lottery Fund to develop their ‘Train to Gain’ project. The ‘Train to Gain’ project aims to help the long term unemployed and single parents gain the skills that are necessary to apply for and secure a job. The project will deliver a comprehensive training programme to enhance their C.V. in order to improve their opportunities in life and increase their employability prospects. The Brandwood Centre is already a Jobcentre Plus Host, through this role the Centre offers unemployed people a placement which sees them shadow a member of staff and assist them with the running of the Centre and the various activities it holds each week. The development of the ‘Train to Gain’ project will build on the already excellent work the Brandwood Centre does with the community in helping people get back into work.
