Launch Pad is an intensive 8 – week programme of job preparation and job search support for lone parents, carers and partners. It includes group workshops and a work placement with an employer to receive expert information, advice and support to work towards employment, including help to manage the personal circumstances that prevent these people from considering work or working.

Wai Fung discusses his role as a trainer for this particular project at 5E Ltd:

“My work as a trainer at 5E is challenging yet very rewarding. I help prepare clients to transition from home to work. I conduct sessions on soft skills like CV writing, cover letter, interview skills and also conduct individual interviews where in I identify barriers and help clients find ways of overcoming them. This helps my clients gain confidence, knowledge and skills to enter or re-enter workplace. Seeing their successful transformation into more confident job seekers is truly rewarding”
