Learning to Earning Project

FREE training for the unemployed/not working


Are you unemployed or not working?

 Why not sign up for a free programme of learning?


You will…

  • Learn how to deal with stress
  • Learn how to boost your confidence
  • Learn how to use a computer at beginners or intermediate level
  • Learn about internet and e-mail
  • Learn how to create a CV
  • Learn how to complete a job application form
  • Learn about interview techniques
  • Achieve three certificates upon completion
  • ….and much more

Here's what some past learners had to say about the programme...

"The course has enabled me to positively work through difficult and stressful situations in my life that had been a real problem and source of anxiety to me.  I am more confident now and more peaceful.  I still encounter stress but can deal with it better now I know more about why it happens, its causes and so forth.   My life has been transformed by this course and I would highly recommend it to people who are unemployed and trying to find new routes back into employment, or even if you want to meet new people, learn some skills and gain a certificate".  Philip

"I was a bit sceptical at first, but this training wasn't like a course.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, getting out and meeting new people.  It makes you realise you are not on your own".  Dominic

"This training has given me a new outlook".  David

"The tutor was like a magnet, she kept us going...and working, without us realising.  It was fun and stress-free". Linda
