Stable Foundations

What is it?

 

Stable Foundations is a combination of classroom learning and in-work mentoring.

 

The programme begins with a training course, covering all key aspects of employment such as health and safety, personal conduct, policies and procedures. 

People on the programme will then work with the employability team to find the best six month work experience opportunity for them, within our employer network.

During this six months, we offer bespoke support by our employability mentors, who will help with developing a living CV through observations and a diary system. 

After the six month work experience, people on the programme then work with their personal employability mentor to secure paid employment.
