Learning Communities works hard to provide learning opportunities to people who are facing barriers to education and employment.
Based in Lincoln, the charity runs three Community Hubs and a Youth Centre which offer a wide range of advice, learning materials, educational courses and employment support.
Helping people find sustainable employment
In 2016, Learning Communities received a grant of £5,000 to fund the delivery of Job Clubs across Lincolnshire.
The charity’s Job Clubs aim to give people the information and skills they need to successfully search and apply for jobs, confidence to perform well in interviews and the support to sustain employment.
The grant we have received from the Masonic Charitable Foundation will allow us to run weekly Job Clubs at three of our Community Hubs on a flexible, drop in basis offering support to develop and improve CV’s, advice on job search, assistance in completing job applications and preparation for interviews, as well as use of the Hubs computers and printers and general advice and guidance. The project aims to support people into employment, help them sustain employment and to help people remove the barriers that are preventing them from gaining employment.
Our main focus as a charity is to provide help for people with a specific focus on those who need extra support and those suffering disadvantage and difficulties. Helping people into sustainable employment is a priority for Learning Communities and this project will continue to benefit our Communities long after its end date.
