WECIL’s next online employment course will be starting
Thursday 28th January, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.
Working Together focusses on helping people to improve their confidence and to prepare for work/volunteering or moving into further education. We have adapted some of the sessions to meet the need of our learners during this current time with a focus on wellbeing and peer support as well as looking at in-work behaviours and working from home behaviours.
