NEET and Job Hunting in Warwickshire?
The Building Better Opportunities Progress project will support with job hunting. This project, run by Groundwork is working across Coventry and Warwickshire to deliver ‘Progress’, a tailored programme of coaching and support to help NEET young people access training and employment opportunities.
Progress is targeted at those who are the furthest away from getting work, training or back into education. The programme provides up to 12 months of personalised, one-to-one support to young people who are most in need of a helping hand to get them on the path to a successful future.
