Employment and Skills Training
Groundwork London aims to improve the economic prospects of individuals and whole communities by helping people to help themselves. We work with them to develop their confidence, skills and experience in order to find work and to contribute to the regeneration of their own neighbourhoods.
Our employment and training programmes are focused on those people who find it hardest to get work, such as those with low levels of skills, people claiming incapacity benefit, ex-offenders or lone parents. They offer practical work experience, structured training and support to deal with a wide range of personal issues. Programmes have included: landscape and horticulture training in one of our 'Green Teams; training for teaching assistants, and skills development for office administration jobs.
Many of our programmes pay local unemployed people a wage while they work. Increasingly these services are being developed into enterprises with the potential to create jobs in emerging ‘green economies’.
