Jobs Growth Wales+
Develop your skills, gain valuable experience, and earn up to £60 a week!
Job Growth Wales+ is a learning programme that gives you the skills and experience needed to secure employment or to progress into an Apprenticeship or further learning in the future. Whilst on programme you’ll receive comprehensive support to develop your skills, increase your knowledge and maintain your health and wellbeing.
We have two different strands to make sure that you get the support you need to progress:
On this strand we will identify and address any learning barrier(s) that may prevent you from participating in further learning or moving into employment. Along with centre-based learning, you will be provided with a work taster with a local employer, this aims to confirm your occupational focus. You will be provided with the breadth and flexibility of skills you need to progress at the earliest opportunity, along with 1-2-1 support. Your support will be personalised to you and tailored to your needs and will be to match whatever work sector you are interested in. Attendance is aimed at 30 hours per week. You can earn up to £60 per week on this strand.
This strand is for you if you have a specific job or career route in mind, this is where Jobs Growth Wales+ can help you make this a reality. We will work with you on your individual learning plan with specific activities to strengthen your skills, allow you to learn about a subject, and gain experience with local employers. You’ll get paid a weekly training allowance while you learn and work towards a recognised qualification.
Attendance is aimed at 35 hours per week, and you can earn up to £60 per week on this strand.
You can earn up to £60 per week until you are employed then guaranteed to receive national minimum wage.
