Thursday 3rd Sept.. nearly the weekend :)


good day today.. im nearing the end of the Gateway To Work group, its a 2 week roll on roll off course and i had the last training session today for the 2 weeks on Interview techniques. Small group, only the 5 of them compared with the 27 i have lined up for next week! where do i start ??? the session went well and all 5 went away actually having learnt something.. good times amongst this i get my best mate asking me if i know of any places looking for plasterers as he out of work now... maybe i should start charging people for the amount of CV's i write for them ? theres a thought! got rubbish day tomorrow though as its the paperwork day :( bad times.. but still.. it has got to be done

  1. Benefit busters!

    Hi Rich

    Welcome to the TZ blogosphere – interesting post – I just wondered whether you had been watching that jobseekers programme – Benefit Busters? It’s really good – I saw your blog and it made me think of that! Happy bloggin’.


  2. Know the feeling

    Hi Rich

    I too work for a private training company with programmes funded by JCP.  Yes I did the Gateway to Work programme delivery here in Hull and know and understand what it’s like.  Particularly running two week courses back to back with mandated clients.  Fortunately I now work on a lone parents programme where the customers (as we call them) are voluntary and wanting to bring some positive change into their lives.

    Not sure what level of experience you have but if I can help you survive, pass on training materials we used which worked, etc feel free to e-mail me. 

    I guess you, like me, could write quite a book on experiences.

    Take care
