Our Back Up to Work course is a great way to prepare yourself for returning to work. One of our past attendees Mel Corley, can vouch for that, having just got a job with the charity Livability.
He says; “The Back Up to Work course gave me the skills and confidence to find and secure the job. After doing the course I did a lot of volunteering, often doing fulltime hours. This helped me show potential employers that although I have an unconventional CV, I still have a strong commitment to wanting to work, within the constraints of my disability.”
Mel says of Helen Cooke, the course facilitator, who is spinal cord injured herself: “She has been a massive support to me personally, during my journey. She was one of the first people that I contacted to tell the good news.”
“I would recommend the Back Up to Work course to anyone. Helen is second to none.”
Helen will be facilitating the course again this year, which takes place in Edinburgh from Wednesday 14th – Saturday 17th November 2012. If you are interested in going, call 020 88751805 and speak to the courses team.
