What are some of those barriers:


  • Not knowing what you want to do: we can walk you through the careers process
  • Not knowing how to get there: we make an action plan with everyone
  • Lack of confidence: we are here to empower you
  • Not knowing any employers: we have a database of over 600 employers
  • Not knowing what the workplace expects of you: that’s all about employability which is our specialty!
  • Drivers Licence: yes we even help with that
  • Safety course: and we do that
  • First Aid – and even this

We get you Set For Life!

The Licence to Work programme is run in a variety of places around the country, employers are now recognising the benefits. They don’t have time to teach you the Employability Skills they want you to have these already. Work experience is part of the programme and gives you the chance to see if you like the job and gives the employer the opportunity to see if you have those Employability Skills. Impress the employer and turn it into paid employment.
