Our Health Academy teams have been working together with various organisations, including Job Centres across Preston, Chorley & Leyland, to help local people who aspire to return to work after being long term unemployed.
Candidates learn employability skills and re-engage with the ethos of working. Managers and programme coordinators assist and guide candidates towards seeking and applying for vacancies as well as taking part in a work placement.
We have run two successful programmes to date and helped 28 out of a possible 36 candidates back into work. We will be continuing to run this programme as an annual event.
