Adult jobseekers in the West of England can tap into support from National Star to help them find their next role.

Adult Education funding from the West of England Combined Authority means that experienced job coaches from National Star can help adults over 19 years old living in the South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset and Bristol areas to find work.

One-to-one support in Maths and English will be provided as well as support with CV writing, interview preparation and job search techniques. Adults with a self-declared disability, including those with social anxiety or depression, who sign up to the programme can also study towards a vocational qualification to help them increase their chances of finding employment.

Job coach support will be provided initially on a ‘virtual’ basis with a view to face-to-face support being offered when the current lockdown is over.

‘Job support is often directed at young adults but there is no upper age limit on the support that we can provide through this adult education programme,’ said Nicola Noah, the Recruitment and Assessment Co-ordinator who is recruiting adults to join the programme.

‘It’s hard to keep motivated and maintain your self-confidence to search for work, especially if you do not know how to improve your chances after multiple rejections. Our experienced Job Coach will be with you every step of the way, providing personalised support to help you to achieve your work goals,’ added Nicola.

Anyone interested in finding out more about joining the four-day a week programme, which runs from March to July 2021 is asked to contact Nicola Noah at nnoah@nationalstar.org or by phoning 07837 555329.
