Join our network

The Ways2Work Network is a community of education, support and training organisations keeping each other updated about opportunities for supporting people in Bristol and the West of England into work.

We do this through daily and weekly emails, quarterly networking meetings across the city and jobs fairs and other events across the West of England.

On this site, we have links and information on lots of organisations offering help to get into work. Please look through our directory of providers to see who we work with. Feel free to get in touch with any of the organisations using the contact details on their pages.

Our Events pages will keep you updated with current training opportunities, jobs fairs and more.

If you would like to receive email updates, see below for details on how to sign up. We are happy to send out information on any opportunities or vacancies you would like publicised. Please send any jobs or training information to and as long as it’s relevant we will circulate it for you.

Subscribe to our mailing list

We have two different mailing lists:
Daily – we send daily updates from our partners at around 9am every weekday morning. This is most useful if you work as a professional in a role connected with employment or employability and find it useful to know everything that’s going on in the sector.
If you would like to sign up to daily emails please complete the W2W sign up form and send it back to
Weekly – this is a MailChimp newsletter that covers some featured events and courses, links to the latest website updates and highlights other useful information in the sector.

Ways2Work network meetings

We hold quarterly staff networking meetings to keep up to date with what organisations are offering, what training is being provided and how to refer clients. The first half of the meeting is speaking slots for updates from employers, key partners and updates about new provision starting in the area. This is followed by coffee, biscuits and networking before everyone attending has a one minute update on their service.

If you are interested in attending and haven’t been before, please drop us an email and we can give you more information.

The meetings are in January, April, July and October in venues across Bristol belonging to our partners. You can find details of the next Ways2Work network meeting on the calendar.
