Education, Training, and Employment

Our Education, Training and Employment (ETE) service can help you to overcome barriers to employment and help you take the next step in your personal and professional development – whether you want to learn a new skill, gain a relevant qualification or go on to further education, we can assist you.

In addition to employment and educational opportunities, the ETE function will provide you with wider social integration, the ability to be transformational in yourself, and for you to foster aspirational qualities.

Once you feel ready, we can also support you on your journey back into meaningful employment.

My one on one sessions have really helped me to understand addiction more and how to help myself handle my situation and how to look after myself first.  Without my one on one sessions, I would not have coped.

The sessions during lunch time were a huge success. The students really showed an interest with all year groups coming to find out more information. A great service. Thank you for your time.

The Recovery Hub has changed my life. I enjoy the socialising, and I am now a volunteer. I look forward to helping others who are in a position I was once in. The Recovery Hub is a place where you can develop positives from your negatives – just like a photograph.

ResoLUTiONs helped me get my life back on track, and I’ll be eternally grateful for the support and guidance I have received. Recovery is a long and difficult journey, but only you can make that first step.

I am so excited for the next part of my life. I am truly blessed that they worked so hard to get me here. Thank you so much.
