5. Education and training
There are a range of online courses that you can access for free on our Customer E-learning zone that can support you with your learning and development.
6. In work support
From day one of employment, we'll offer 6 months support to help you overcome any barriers you may find when starting in new employment.
This ranges from financial issues to getting the right clothing for the job. Support is offered either by email, phone or face to face and we encourage you to contact us regularly so we can ensure no problems are left for any length of time.
7. Working Wardrobe
Working Wardrobe has been set up to tackle another barrier into employment that so many men and women face today. That barrier is the lack of suitable clothing to wear in order to make a good first impression at the interview.
9. The Skills for Employment service
The Skills for Employment service operates across Greater Manchester and provides personalised support to adults who are out of work, to improve their skills and find sustainable employment. Skills for Employment is delivered by MGC’s Work Company and a network of local skills and employment providers, including Bolton at Home.
