Summer at Ways2Work – Our August Update

Here at Ways2Work we’ve had a busy few months and we’re going to make up for that by having a less busy couple of months. Everyone is going to have some well-earned R&R. Most things should carry on as normal, if they don’t, please enjoy the respite you get from that and we’ll get back on track as soon as we can.

You can catch up with what’s going on in a few places:

·   Ways2Work website news

·    Ways2Work website calendar

·     Ways2Work Twitter

·    Ways2Work Facebook

·   Ways2Work Google File storage (for course flyers and the like)

If you’d like your information to be in any of these places, please email it to ways2work@bristol.gov.uk so we can email it to the network and then add details to any or all of the above.

Recap of network meeting

We had our third online network meeting on Wednesday 15 July. We heard from construction skills providers and wellbeing and mental health organisations.

Our next network meeting will be on 26 August at 10am. You can book a place now on Eventbrite.

Next Virtual Jobs Fair

After the success of the pilot Virtual Jobs Fair in June, there will be another!

Add it to your diary now, 8 September, 2-3pm – if you’d like more details, email chris.mitchell@bristol.gov.uk.

Resources on the Ways2Work Website

We’ve tried to keep up with the rapidly changing environment of virus, guidance and policy and highlight the relevant information on the Ways2Work website, www.ways2work.org.uk, as well as frequent updates of our dedicated COVID-19 information hub. Please let us know if there’s anything you’d like us to include by sending an email to ways2work@bristol.gov.uk.

Network news

Courses are beginning to start back in physical locations. We have updated our calendar to show all events. This is back to normal – we had changed it to only show online events.

We’d be happy to share details of your employment and skills events and courses. Just email them through to ways2work@bristol.gov.uk as normal and please make sure you include the start date so we know where to put it.
