Launch of Old Oak Community & Children’s Centre Work Club

Large hall at Old Oak Community and Children’s Centre

After the Easter break the centre will be focusing on learning, training and employment. Along side their current adult learning sessions, Take One Day and Next Step support they will be running a Work Club and offering 1:1 mentoring as part of the Wishes programme. They will be tailoring support so that they can work with individuals at all different stages along the path back into learning, training and employment.

The Work Club is aimed at parents who are actively looking to return to work. It will be run at the centre by centre staff with support from some partner organisations. The Work Club will be a fortnightly session, offering access to computers for job searching, peer support and sharing experiences and input from professionals with practical advice around writing CVs, Interview skills and looking for work.

There are lots of different programmes out there and it can be very confusing. To make the picture clearer some partner organisations will be coming to the launch to share information about their service and parents/carers are invited to drop in, meet the staff and find out more information about the range of support and services available.

Representatives will be present from organisations including Next Step, Wishes, Work Club, Take One Day, Burleigh College, Adult Learning, Job Centre Plus, Hammersmith and Fulham Volunteer centre, Nucleus and Childcare provision.

So whether you are interested in work, building skills, finding training or just getting some ideas, drop in to our launch day and see what we have to offer.
