preparing for work

This FREE course is aimed at anyone in Hertfordshire who is looking to make the transition into, or back into, employment.  We recognise that finding your way back into work after a long absence can be challenging and sometimes scary but our ‘ready for Work’ programme is designed to provide you with the belief, confidence and skills to help you secure your next step to employment.

Our course leaders are not teachers or tutors, they are highly experienced facilitators who bring groups together, guiding the sessions and creating a space that is informal, accepting and stimulating.  Our LaunchPad learning centre is similarly not a classroom, simply a welcoming and relaxed space that we use creatively as the activities demand.  Laughter of course is a welcome and key ingredient!

  • Gaining self belief – from who you are and what you believe in
