Seven Hyde residents from Brighton recently achieved Level 1 Digital and Employment skills after taking part in a two-week digital and employability skills course at the end of last year. The project was delivered by JobSkilla and fully funded externally. The residents took part in interactive group activities, learnt about CV writing, presentation skills and workplace best practice.
Everyone who completed the two-week course took home the tools necessary to succeed in their job search. Tools included a new laptop, a completed CV, cover letter and a personal email address to put them on the right track.
This approach highlights how housing associations can work together to support residents to find meaningful employment.
Sarah Willis, Programme Manager, Successful Places, Hyde Foundation said, “Working collaboratively with Clarion and Southern Housing has benefited our shared communities, and thanks to JobSkilla we hope to see this project rolled out across London in the future. Good luck to everyone who completed the course!”.
