Online workshops

We’ve teamed up with our Friary Park development partner, Mount Anvil, to deliver a series of employment support workshops this September and October.

What’s it about
The aim of the programme is to support customers who are looking for work, or want to improve their future career opportunities.

Who’s it for
The programme is aimed at Acton based customers, aged 16 years old and over. We’ll consider Catalyst customers from other areas too, so please don’t be put off applying.

What’s involved
We’re hosting a series of online workshops to help you improve your chances of finding work and developing your career prospects. All sessions will be delivered by a Catalyst Employment Advisor.

Each session will be a group discussion, but you can book separate one-to-one sessions with one of the team, if you’d like to discuss specific aims and employment support.

You don’t need to book yourself on every session. You can pick and choose the ones that are suitable for you.
