It’s a wrap! The Bridge at Waterloo (TBAW) completed its second employability course on February 22nd, with 12 happy participants successfully completing the one-week experience.
On the agenda: communications skills, job searching, CV-writing and time management. “It was a packed and productive week,” said Daniel Gregory, TBAW programme director. “The participants got through six-hour days and we covered a huge amount of ground.”
Ranging in age from 18 to 63, the group hailed mainly from Lambeth, with a diverse range of backgrounds. Some people were returning to the job market after a long-term unemployment; others had been caring for family and now needed to work. There were also young people just out of college, looking to hone their job skills.
The course, which was free, had an enthusiastic response. “It was a well-constructed course, which covered more than I expected,” said Dee, a participant. “Daniel made everyone feel at ease.”
Watch out for the next TBAW employability course; details coming soon on www.bridgeatwaterloo.org
