In September, we hosted the Discovery Event from our new centre in Edmonton Green. The 3 day event was for parents not engaged with the job centre but interested in gaining employment.
12 single parents attended and the feedback was positive. They took part in team work activities, learnt about the current labour market and also received help in CV creation from 5E advisor Janice Henry and trainer Jeremy Coulton.
It was an informative event, with guest speakers from the job centre and inspirational talks by individuals who have succeeded in sustaining employment despite being a lone parent, sometimes with severe health problems.
