Covid-19 Update for Skills Cafe
We will continue to offer support each Wednesday with job search/universal credit job match. Staff will also be able to offer support by phone or face to face providing that they do not present any symptoms of COvid-19 or are in the most vulnerable groups. Numbers and time spent at the Skills Café will be limited so we can adhere to social distancing and to give everyone a chance. We are requesting that if clients use Skills Café, they do not use My Space or MHH (and vice versa). There will also be care packages available at Skills Café if required.
The Vine Centre runs the Skills Café on behalf of PEBL (Prospect Estate Big Local)
Held every Wednesday, on the Prospect Estate in Farnborough, and open to all the estate residents.
Computers are available for local residents to use, complete with free internet access. The friendly team is on hand to help with a wide range of job searching services including: writing CV’s, improving computer skills, applying for jobs online and practicing interview skills.
We signpost people to a wide range of local training opportunities, including those held at The Vine Centre. As well as this, we hold regular recruitment events and run workshops on a variety of subjects such as; preparing for an interview. We offer career advice to people who are looking for a change of scene or returning to work after a break.
We work closely with other local organisations:
A Citizens Advice representative visits every week to give advice about benefits, budgeting, paying bills and anything else money related. The VIVID Homes, Employment & Training Adviser provides extra help to VIVID tenants each week. The local adviser from National Careers Service also regularly attends to give visitors one-to-one help.
There is no need to make an appointment for Skills Café, just turn up.
