We offer a range of employability courses specifically designed to ensure all our learners from a range of different academic backgrounds have the best chance of success in gaining employment. The courses are one-on-one or in small groups to help you build a network of support and to learn from one another.
Employability courses are available throughout the year in various locations across Kent. We often run training sessions in Ashford, Herne Bay, Margate, and Maidstone in either our training rooms or other easily accessible venues.
These employability courses are completely free for unemployed individuals who are receiving job-related benefits from the Government. If you do not have a GCSE or Level 2 Functional Skills in English and Maths, these courses are free for both employed and unemployed people.
