Beyond the Barriers

‘Beyond the Barriers’ is a unique training programme aimed at helping front-line workers from the health, housing and community sectors to develop their knowledge and awareness of employability issues.

The aim of the course is to give front-line workers the confidence to discuss employability with their clients/customers, and to signpost effectively to appropriate specialist support.

Our experienced and dynamic trainers bring this topic to life in a practical, fun and highly interactive session, supporting delegates to:

  • Explore the complex issues and barriers facing people seeking to access or sustain employment
  • Gain insights into how to support clients with addressing their barriers to employment
  • Find out about the practical support that is available to help clients move closer to the labour market
  • Gain a basic overview of the changes to welfare benefits, and of the potential impacts of a move into employment or training on benefit claims.

The session can be delivered as a half-day or one-day session.

What our delegates said…

I really enjoyed the workshop and have advised colleagues to attend if the workshop is held again in the future.

I personally found the day very rewarding, and if there are any future sessions I have recommended all our paid staff should attend as I feel it will benefit all of them in their different roles. Thanks again … for an enjoyable and informative day, it was the best workshop I have attended in a long time.

The directory is extremely useful. Networking with other agencies and presenters very knowledgeable. A very good workshop – well planned, well presented, well timed and very informative.

Found the trainers really helpful, approachable and knowledgeable. Really enjoyable and informative. I feel more confident on the subject now.

Really good and fun course. Exercises were all really good.

I really enjoyed the day and gained lots of info and ideas which I have shared with colleagues. You deserve credit for presenting such an informative event.
