Giving people skills and building their confidence.

Community Learning & Development – we work to support communities and encourage others to do so.  We see community learning and development as being central to increasing the supply of ‘social capital’ to grasp opportunities and work together to boost the spirit of the community and raise levels of inclusion and worthiness. 

Embrace Workclub @ Leigh

We have a Workclub that is supported by Job Centre Plus at the Westwell Community Centre, Westwell Street, Leigh every Wednesday 10 – 12pm.  Call 01695 633389 to book your place or speak to your Advisor at the Job Centre who will give you further details.  This workclub is geared to support your learning in areas such as CV writing, job searching and giving you the tools so that you can do this yourself!  We teach you how to search for jobs using the Internet, how to set up your own email address, how to write letters using Word and interviewing hints and tips.

We offer development in the following areas

·         Increase Skills to Build Confidence
·         Develop communication skills
·         Improve the Environment

·         Health Improvement
·         Volunteering
·         Equality & Diversity

Embrace brings together education and learning and its aim is to help individuals and communities tackle real issues in their lives through community based learning.   Our people have a variety of skills in a number of sectors and all of them share our ethos of a genuine desire to make a difference to individuals and ultimately the community.

We have been running Workclubs in both Orrell and Westleigh for the past 12 months and if you’re interested in building your confidence and improving your employability chances please call either Katie or Linda to book at place.
