Work Ready

Work Ready will give you new skills and qualifications, renewed confidence and extra support.

If you are 18 or over and are unemployed and receiving benefits from the Department for Work and Pensions, then Work Ready is a great opportunity to get you into work or onto further learning.

Your benefits will not be affected, and if you are eligible, you could receive money to help pay for travel and childcare support.

By assessing your needs, Work Ready can be tailored to suit you. There are two levels available - Learning for Work and Skills Conditionality.

You’ll be given help with:
  • Job Searching including completing a job / training application form and creating a basic Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Interviews, preparation, appropriate conduct, communication and reflection
  • Finding out about training opportunities in your area
  • Brush up on Health & Safety
