Employment Readiness Programme (ERP)
The ERP supports women who are experiencing barriers to employment, who are not in work or education and are looking to get into their next step to starting their journey of returning to the workforce.
We do this through supporting women with employment training, work experience and support with other employment related aspects, such as creating a CV and gaining a reference and individual coaching and through offering supportive, transitional work opportunities.
Through coaching and training, we look to equip women and young girls with different resources, skills, and mindsets to get them work-ready whether it's employment or self-employment.
They learn to take realistic steps to develop essential skills and confidence to help develop their potential.
At the end of the programme, those who wish to continue with support into the next phase, are introduced to new and exciting opportunities and career support.
