- Personal Development Training for Get Oldham Working (GOW) Programme
The programme provides additional support with jobseekers, trainees and apprentices to assist with any barriers into work or sustainability whilst in employment, including making appropriate referrals to our Early Help offer and engaging them with personal development training. The Councils early help offer, which provides an intensive programme of support using a Key Worker model (case-load size of 10 to 20 per key worker) that delivers wraparound support including domestic violence, mental and physical health, financial inclusion, offender management and drug and/or alcohol support. This is set up to work with 4,000 clients over the next two years and currently employs 75 key workers. This provides accountability between agencies and ensures that underlying issues are resolved and clients can progress. Personal Development training in the past focuses on supporting individuals with learning new tools and techniques to support development, alongside goal setting with a view of moving the individual forward with a focus on confidence and self-esteem building.
Individuals with complex issues are referred to early help with a view of them overcoming their barriers into work whilst also continuing to get support from Get Oldham Working; however the Get Oldham working programme requires a support programme aimed at people who are unemployed as well as those in post to support their personal development, confidence building, and self-actualisation. The programme will cater for all types of learning styles by adopting different tools to promote the objectives, allowing each individual the opportunity to express themselves in an environment which is informal, consisting of creative/media tools, outdoor learning and therapy tools to embed the learning into a real visual context.
We require 4 programmes throughout 2016 which includes 10 sessions within each Programme and it is expected that there will be a minimum of 2 trainers per session.
