Get Set was established in 2009 and is based in South London, offering innovative and reliable solutions to help unemployed job seekers to gain skills, job opportunities, and vocational training. It has placed over 2000 unemployed people in sustainable work.
They are now working with the Big Lottery Fund to support BME Women into employment and training, primarily working with women who identify as Black African, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Chinese, or Gyspy & Irish Traveller.
The project involves women into employment and training, from finding appropriate courses (including ESOL or Voluntary Work), to working on employability skills (CV, Jobsearch, Interview Skills), and putting clients forwards for jobs, delivering ongoing support while they are in work. This is a long-term project where clients are receiving one-to-one tailored support. We will utilise local spaces such as libraries, community centres, and even coffee shops, in order to provide a service where the clients feel comfortable. While working towards a goal of employability, the ongoing support is designed to boost the clients’ motivation and confidence levels.
Clients must be unemployed or economically inactive; they don’t need to be claiming benefits, but if they are it doesn’t matter what benefit they are on.
From registration they will work with each client for up to 12 months, and we will be registering new clients on the project up until December 2017.
