Our Employment Preparation Programmes are funded by the Ministry of Social Development, with the primary objective to equip participants with work-ready skills and help them find paid employment. We have two Employment Preparation programmes running throughout the year – Training for Work and WorkPrep. We also run occasional short courses preparing clients for contact centre roles within specific organisations. These short focused courses are run on an ad hoc basis.

- CV and Cover Letter writing
