The North Essex Economic Board (NEEB) wants to help people back into work, or to change careers. To help achieve this we are fully funding three skills programmes for local residents – meaning they are free for you to do, provided you live in the NEEB area (in the districts of Braintree, Chelmsford, Colchester, Maldon, Tendring, Uttlesford or Epping Forest).
Run by Shaw Trust, the Skills Path provides dedicated training and skills, mentoring and support, to help you into employment.
If you became unemployed in the last three months, were made redundant due to Covid, or are a refugee, you could qualify.
There is general support back into work, and training in specific key sectors such as construction, customer service, health and social care and warehousing.
