Beyond Barriers Employabilty


The project is to provide a 15 week intensive support to get recovering and ex addicts back to work. The project we want to deliver is to support recovering and recovered addicts into employment or to get involve in community volunteering. The project will consist on training and personal development for individuals who are unable to get a job to help them gain skills like confidence building , looking at future decisions, personal planning  and looking at available opportunities to support the local community. The programme will be broken down into a series of workshops and seminars exploring attitudes to life and work, challenging their status quo and helping them to visualize what they want to achieve in the future. These workshops are based around key employability skills and will include mock interviews, presentations and developing professional profiles and C.V’s. A range of talks aimed at raising motivation levels and broadening their understanding of what employers look for in prospective employees will also take place. All participants will gain the following skills:

  • Teambuilding
  • Communication skills
  • Responsibility
  • Planning and Leading
  • Increased self Esteem
  • Emotional Resilience
  • Presentation
  • Timing Keeping
  • Ambition
  • Experience in a work environment
