THT's Work Positive Programme - open for applications 2016/17
Posted on: July 7 2016, 10:42 am

Posted on behalf of THT:
----------
Work Positive is launching for its sixth year on July 1st, having supported over 100 people build skills and confidence to make steps back towards the workplace over the last 5 years.
 
The Work Positive programme is a combination of work experience, mentoring, training, coaching and peer support with the aim of building confidence and skills to help people living with HIV who are unemployed move back towards the work place in a safe and supportive environment and in a way that suits them.
 
The work experience will be hosted at Terrence Higgins Trust or one of our charity partners, and participants will be fully supported by a line manager and a mentor. Expenses for travel and lunch will be reimbursed.
 
The training workshops cover topics such as Building Confidence, Building Rapport at Work, Goal Setting, Disclosure at Work, CV and Applications Writing and Interview Techniques.
Participants on last yearís project enjoyed great success with 8 people securing paid work, (47% over the last 5 years) and 52% attending interviews but itís not all about finding paid work. 91% of last years participants now feel more optimistic about the future, 83% agreed they are now ready to go back to work and 100% have increased their confidence in their work-related skills.

The programme will be available in London, Brighton, Cambridge, Essex and Shrewsbury.
 
Applications are open from July 1st to August 7th and applications can be completed online at www.tht.org.uk/workpositive.
 
More information can be found at www.tht.org.uk/workpositive or anyone interested can give me a call on 0207 812 1804.
 
If you have any questions, please let me know.
 
Thank you
