The UCAN centre works with our partner agencies to help deliver training initiatives designed to improve your personal development and increase your potential to find long term, well paid employment for those looking for work.
- Are you struggling to get a job interview?
- Are you struggle to find work that you have skills in?
- Would you like a career change?
- Retraining is your answer. There are various ways in which you can do this.
You can train either full time or part time. Part time is a great option if you have family or work commitments as it allows you to get the skills you need without impacting on your current work or family commitments. You can also undertake E training which is done on line and does not involve going to college and can be done at home.
Did you know?
You can also train for a maximum of 16 hours per week without affecting your jobseekers allowance.
