The Only A Pavement Away Life Skills Hub is a back-to-work programme designed to support those being rehoused and re-employed on how to live independently, whilst developing their employability skills and giving them the tools they need to get back on their feet.
The Life Skills Hub is a two-week course, with the first week seeing participants learn about:
- Career options in the hospitality industry
- Practical hospitality training
- Budgeting for independent living
- IT skills
- CV writing and interview skills
- Online learning courses and certification provided by CPL Learning
On week two, members go to one of our trusted employers for three days’ work experience. During their placement, they learn about the different options available to them in the hospitality industry and gain valuable practical work experience both front and back of house. Once they have completed the programme, they are provided with vouchers to help them buy home essentials and become fully-fledged members of Only A Pavement Away and are then able to access further support once they have secured employment.
