By offering you the opportunity to enhance your CV, receive expert advice on job hunting, and practice interview techniques, all within a supportive and encouraging environment, we’ll provide you with the tools to return to work.

This course isn’t about finding a job. It’s about making sure you have the knowledge and confidence you need to work towards your employment goals.

The course will cover important topics, such as:

– Past work experience, expectations and challenges
– Disability and employment
– Job hunting
– Motivation and confidence building
– CV writing and covering letter
– Interview skills
– Responsibility of employers and employees

“The course exceeded my expectations. When I was matched with a recruiter who specialised in manufacturing I thought “this is just too good to be true”. I certainly feel more confident applying for jobs than before the course.” – virtual skills for work participant 2021

The course runs from 16th – 18th February. It’s made up of live Zoom workshops and Q&A sessions including, discussions from people who have lived experience of finding employment with a spinal cord injury.

Sessions times are to be confirmed – but we’ll make sure to update this page with the timings . We’ll also factor in breaks to avoid Zoom fatigue.
