Getting into work

Getting into work can be scary. If you've never had a job or are returning to work after a long break, then our introductory job seeking and employability courses and qualifications will help you prepare for finding a job and find out where to look for a job.

You'll find out what employers are looking for, discover how to feel confident in interviews and make sure you know the best way to stay in work and keep a job.

We offer qualifications at entry level 3 and level 1. Here's a simple guide to our different levels of qualifications. Before you start we'll check which level of qualification you should be working towards and the skills you already have in the different areas of the qualification, like working in a team or filling out application forms. This helps us work out which courses are right for you, so you don't cover things you already know.

Most popular modules of the course include:

  • Make your job search effective
  • Best ways of preparing for work
  • Writing a "winning" CV
  • Complete Application Forms
  • Preparing for Interviews
  • Personal presentations for interview

Thanks to government funding your courses and qualification could be free. We'll confirm this with you before you start.

Enrol and learn online at one of our centres, where you'll get face to face support from our friendly staff.
Your tutor will be there to give you advice, and you'll have regular progress reviews to keep you on track.
When you've completed all your courses, you'll either take a test or present your work as a portfolio of evidence. Your centre will explain this to you and in either case make sure you have lots of practice beforehand so you're totally prepared.
