"Being out of work can make us feel like we’ll never find a job again. It eats away at our confidence and creates holes on our CVs that make us worry employers will never give us a chance. It doesn’t matter why we couldn’t work, hundreds of jobseekers have discovered the tricks for getting back on the top with Clean Slate..."
Jeff Mitchell, Founder Director
7 Signs is our programme helping jobseekers explore a different way to find work. It was designed for people facing bigger gaps or barriers in their work history. But people of all backgrounds have found it helps motivate them, boost their confidence and set inspiring goals.
The group meet over two full days or four half days. There are no teachers, we encourage discussion between the real experts; jobseekers themselves.
Your will explore how much you have to offer and consider what sort of work you might be best suited for. At the end, you'll likely have have a good idea of your ideal job and ways to overcome any obstacles that might be in the way.
*On the two day course, lunch is provided both days as well as tea and coffee for all courses. Travel costs can be covered in some cases.
Elements is a all about turning your life experience into something an employer will value. For many, this will be a great next step after attending our 7 Signs training.
So you might have experience of navigating the benefit system... Who better to help others do the same?! Maybe you've been a long term carer, a stay-at-home parent; all have transferable skills.
Many of our own colleagues started out as clients who needed support with money, finding work or feeling confident online but then went on to access further support and training towards a career with us.
The programme offers a 12 week placement, including at least half a day's paid work at the real living wage with support from Clean Slate and the host employer. After the course, which includes level 2 training, people will be supported to apply for work.
