Lewisham Homes would like to say a big thank you to St Giles’ Trust Routeways programme who came to deliver an employment support taster workshop on Tuesday 26th November.
Nadia, Emily, Melissa and Margaret from St Giles Trust held an excellent workshop, and the course was well attended by residents. Attendees received a one-to-one support worker to help them with a variety of employment skills, such as CV writing and interview skills, as well as being put in touch with training and employment opportunities.
The session was both fun and informative, with those attending looking back at their childhood dream careers and sharing their experiences of work. Perhaps most importantly, residents learnt some interview skills to help them stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs.
A large number of residents also attended our budgeting course the following day and the feedback from that was also very positive. One resident said: “The course was brilliant and it has given me confidence to pursue my goals and apply for jobs.”
