Are you looking to get back into employment, but not quite sure where to start?

If yes, then let Telford College offer a helping hand.

Through our links with Jobcentre Plus and local businesses we offer a range of vocational courses designed to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills to enter employment across a wide range of sectors. Best of all, if you are in receipt of Job Seekers Allowance* these programmes are free.

The College is committed to programmes for the unemployed in our area and over the past 12 months have helped retrain and signpost to employment over 1000 people who have found themselves out of work.

We provide all the help and support that makes your journey back into employment quick and easy.

* If you are in receipt of another Income related benefit and looking to enter employment you may be entitled to a nil fee. 

Employability Skills – How to Enrol

If you are in receipt of Job Seekers Allowance, Universal Credit or Employment Support Allowance (WRAG) these courses are free.  To attend you will need to speak with your Work Coach who will be able to refer you to an initial assessment session and direct you to the most appropriate course to meet your needs.

If you are unemployed and wish to enter employment and require skills training in order to do so, but are not in receipt of JSA/UC/ESA you may be entitled to a discretionary nil fee. This depends on personal circumstance and any other benefits you may receive. Please contact us for more information or alternatively make an appointment with Jobcentre Plus.
