The Working Well Project
Working Well is a free service which helps people living in B&NES aged 14-55 to make steps towards planning for jobs or courses you are interested in, making steps towards achieving that future role or course with regular coaching and support sessions. We will help you to remove barriers, explore and gain new skills through one-to-one coaching, activities and training, CV writing and working out a career direction; job and apprenticeship searching.
A support worker from our team will meet with you and work out an individual plan, tailored to your goals and aspirations.
Who is it for?
- Anyone living in B&NES aged 14-55.
- This will particularly suit you if you've been finding it hard to figure out what kind of job you're looking for or which direction you would like to take with your career.
- Not everyone gets the exam results they'd hoped for - this is a great way to take some time to explore your options and work out what you want to do next.
