Breaking Down The Barriers

What is ‘Breaking Down the Barriers’?

It is a unique project designed to assist and empower members of our local community who are currently unemployed or economically inactive and looking to build their confidence, employability skills, social skills and self-esteem. We encourage their movement towards the labour market through intensive 1:1 support sessions and group activities supported by our expert tutors and peer mentors.

Courses usually run for between 10 and 12 weeks up to two days a week.

Building Better Opportunities

Through the Building Better Opportunities (BBO) project we are able to offer practical, targeted support to disadvantaged groups of people throughout Northamptonshire, helping them back into
employment.

The pre-employment support we offer to participants consist of confidence building and mentoring workshops, CV writing and life skills development programmes as well as practical support regarding
the acquisition of formal identification (i.e. passports, driving licences).

‘Just the Job’.

The 10-week programme we deliver is designed specifically to encourage our participants to recognise the skills they have which are easily transferrable to the workplace and provide practical hands on experience in a variety of areas.

We enable participants to develop practical skills such as making presentations, using social media and IT skills. Additionally, we assist participants to develop other work transferrable skills such as teamwork, timekeeping, leadership and communication.

The learners we’ve encountered thus far have experienced a significant loss in confidence for a variety of reasons including (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, learning difficulties and other additional health needs.

From engagement with both programmes and through referrals, we recruit peer mentors and offer volunteer placements where people can build and develop their skills in a supportive environment.
