TRENT AND DOVE HOUSING TO PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR BACT EMPLOYMENT PROGRAMME

A PROGRAMME delivered by Burton Albion Community Trust’s employability staff, has had a boost, following a recent partnership agreement to receive support from Trent and Dove Housing.

The ‘My Future Goal’ programme aims to help people aged sixteen-plus, who are out of education, employment and training, that still have a desire to volunteer. Staff will provide one-to-one personalised career advice alongside curriculum vitae writing workshops, to build youngsters confidence when applying for potential employment. The programme also offers potential to take part in BACT’s traineeship programme, that engages in function skills, vocational/employability training for twelve weeks.

My Future Goal will help provide volunteering opportunities with Burton Albion Community Trust, Burton Albion Football Club, Trent and Dove and within other local charities and businesses. Participants are invited to attend a Job Club, which is hosted by Mark Foster Employment and Liaison Officer from Trent and Dove, every Thursday afternoon from 2-4pm at Burton Albion Community Hub.

Sarah Evans, Education and Learning Team Leader, said: “Working alongside Trent and Dove enhances our offer for volunteering within the Burton on Trent area. Mark (Foster) offers a fantastic service through the Jobs club and together we offer a full range of services to all who need employability advice.”
