Supporting people into education, training and employment
For many people, gaining access to training and employment is the key to moving on from homelessness and ultimately in becoming independent. However, people experiencing homelessness often face numerous barriers to taking these positive steps. This 2-day course will help you to support your clients to overcome these barriers and access work, education or training. You will develop practical skills and knowledge, coaching tools and the confidence you need to empower your clients to take risks, step out of their comfort zones and support them through the challenges and changes this presents.
Who is this course for?
It is suitable for managers and frontline staff in the homelessness and supported housing sector, who want to update their skills.
