In the past year we have given employment coaching to over 30 young people; nearly 90% of those we helped went back to college, into training or found employment.

Our employment support service is not just for those over 16 who are not in education, employment or training but anyone who wants to make a move towards gaining employment or do some training with a view to improving their employment potential.

In the past year Key have given training/employment mentoring to over 30 people and those we supported went into training, took a big step towards employment or found employment.

If you are unemployed or economically inactive you may be able to get support from the More Positive Together project.

Key delivers this project in South Ribble, Chorley and the Lancaster areas.

More Positive Together is a Lancashire-wide project which will help 2,250 residents of the county’s most deprived neighbourhoods to improve their skills and employment prospects. It is led by Lancashire Sport Partnership and supported by funding from the European Social Fund.

It aims to help you build confidence and set goals so that you can find and maintain a job, complete a training course or gain useful qualifications.

How does employment support work?

You will be supported by a mentor on a one-to-one basis.

You will meet with your mentor on a regular basis and they will help you think about what you enjoy doing, what you are good at and what you might like to do in the future.

Along with your mentor you will put together a plan that breaks down your goals into manageable targets and we will give you support every step of the way to help you achieve these.

How can we help?

We could help you:

  • Improve your confidence and self-esteem
  • Develop life skills and set life goals
  • Get valuable work experience
  • Get into education, training or apprenticeships and traineeships
  • Improve your CV and interview techniques

Did you know? - around a million young people are currently classed as NEET - not in education, training or employment.

Our aim is to help try and reduce that number.
