I am overwhelmed with the support and I wouldn't be where I am now without all of your help. I told my work coach that these webinars should be encouraged by job seekers to do, even if they think they know it all, I can guarantee they don't. I've learnt so much, and it's even those conversations that go off on a tangent when one of us "jobseekers" ask you questions, and you suggest extra websites to look at etc. Sector-based work academies The DWP are recruiting for more Work Coaches across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and we are running a sector-based work academy via Zoom to help you find out more about the opportunities and get help and support with the application and selection process: Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd December, 10am-3pm Apply here for your free place.
