Coffee and Careers
Every Monday you can drop into Skills Launchpad Plymouth on the first floor of Barclays, where our dedicated coordinators are on hand to offer you information, advice and guidance, whether you are looking for work, wanting to improve your CV, identify all those transferable skills or have a chat about your career options.
This week we have Marie and Ashley from On Course Southwest on hand to provide information on their SMART skills workshops, offering a wide range of FREE courses to help you achieve your goals which are flexible to your needs.
Sean from CSW's Smart Skills will also be on hand to offer guidance on courses and qualifications you can gain if you’re wanting to upskill and can support you if you’re employed at no cost to your employer.
Each Tuesday we host a dedicated drop-in session for military service leavers, veterans and their families, where you can drop in and speak to a dedicated coordinator who can provide you with support, guidance and information on skills, training, jobs and careers. Each week we have various organisations that are dedicated to working with the military and those making the transition into civilian life.
Each week there is a representative from RFEA. The Forces employment charity provides life-long, support, jobs and training opportunities to service leavers, reservists, veterans and their families, irrespective of circumstances, rank, length of service, or reason for leaving.
This week we also have ‘Taff’ Howells, from OPSTAT with us. Taff is a serving member of the armed forces and has an established company providing security and also offering training opportunities to train in this area. He is actively recruiting ex-military, but also those who have no military experience but looking to gain qualifications and move into security roles.
Alongside Taff, we will also have a DWP Armed Forces Champion on site, who will be on hand to offer benefit and job advice and guidance.
Both days are open to all, so drop in between 10am-4pm for a chat.
