Newton Aycliffe residents are being given a chance to improve their employability with a free course run by the local charity Lifeline Community Action. Lifeline Community Action Coordinator Pauline Chambers, said: “When it comes to job hunting, having the right tools and techniques up your sleeve can really improve your chances in finding work. We provide a personal service which gives people both practical and emotional support. Lifeline’s Job Club works with individual’s and aims to meet their personal needs. Sessions cover practical topics such as identifying strengths, CV writing and interview techniques”. Pauline added: “With more people facing long-term unemployment, we hope to help people gain the confidence and skills they need to get back into work again. If participants are on a low income and complete the course, we can also provide a clothing voucher to purchase an outfit suitable for attending interviews. We know that making the right impression at an interview is important and many people who have been on a low income for a long period of time have told us that they don’t have the funds to purchase appropriate clothing and so we try to help with this practical support too.” The 10 week course will begin on Tuesday the 27th September 2016 at The Pioneering Care Partnership, Cobblers Hall, Newton Aycliffe starting at 9.30am until 12.30pm with a light lunch provided.
