ADTRAC will support you into either work, education or training. This is delivered by local teams across North Wales; to provide a personalised support & engagement programme.

We offer:

  • One to one intensive support
  • Personalised action plans to guide you on your journey
  • Support to develop confidence and overcome any barriers which prevent you from progressing.
  • Wellbeing support including the opportunity to access provision for mild/moderate mental health needs from Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.
  • Access to training which will enable you to reach your goals.
  • Employability support which will include a range of opportunities for you to achieve your goals.

The teams will work with you to develop your understanding, and support you in the direction that you want to go, so that you can build your confidence in your ability and skills.

We will be able to support if you are:

  • Aged 16-24 and not in education, training or employment.
  • Living in North Wales (and not residing in a Communities First Area);
  • Experiencing barriers which prevent you from progressing into either education, employment or training.

With the economy in North Wales growing, the demand for a skilled workforce is on the rise. Now is the time to access support to achieve opportunities in these regional growth sectors. The journey into work can sometimes be difficult, especially when there are barriers which prevent you from realising your potential.

  • Who is eligible?

    We will be able to support if you are:

    • Aged 16-24 and not in education, training or employment
    • Living in North Wales (and not residing in a Communities First Area)

  • How do I get referred onto the project?

    To be referred for ADTRAC support please speak to your Job Centre Work Coach or Careers Wales Advisor.

    Alternatively you can contact your local team in the county which you live, and they will be able to provide you with some further details on how to access support and what you will need to bring when you first meet the ADTRAC Team.

  • What will happen when I first meet the ADTRAC Team?

    Someone from the ADTRAC Team will meet with you to discuss the project and to find out a bit more about you, what you are finding difficult and what you want to achieve. They will then be able to discuss with you the approach they can take to support you to overcome your barriers and to achieve your goals.

    After that they will complete the sign up paperwork with you and once they have all the evidence documents in place, they will begin writing an action plan and putting together your support package. You will be the driver in what your package looks like to support you on your journey into either work, education or training.

    The support you receive will be personal to you, and could include support for welfare matters, wellbeing, mild/moderate mental health concerns, skills improvement and employability.

  • What evidence do I need to bring when I meet the ADTRAC Team?

  • What is ADTRAC’s Eco Code?
    Eco Code

    Throughout the lifetime of the project, ADTRAC will promote sustainable development and minimise its impact on the environment. ADTRAC will adopt the following approaches to achieve this:

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    We will use only the materials we need so we reduce this risk of waste. Where possible the project will recycle materials and purchase recycled materials.

    Travel

    We will encourage more environmentally friendly ways to travel including encouraging the use of public transport, vehicle sharing where possible and reducing the need for travel where possible through using technology such as google hangout, videoconferences and skype.

    Energy

    We will encourage our teams to adopt practical ways of saving energy, including turning off electronic devices when not in use, turning off all heating/lighting when it is not needed, closing all doors/windows in winter; and turning off taps whenever they are not in use.

    Encourage Others

    We will produce materials which provide practical tips on how have a positive impact on the environment, these will be available in video format as well as literature to reduce the amount of factsheets we will need to produce.

    This video clip offers one tip per month which can be easily incorporated into everyday life and collectively can make a real difference over a year.
