Check out our training opportunities - great courses running in your area!
Radian is committed to helping our residents flourish. It is isn't easy to secure training, a job or even an interview right now, so Radian has set up EST - Employment, Support and Training, to help give you the best chance of success. If you are looking to get into employment, let us give you a guiding hand.
The EST team offers all kinds of practical job hunting help and tailored training programmes to help to boost confidence, self esteem and presentation skills - little things that can make a big difference in today's job market. We've also created a booklet called the 'Employer's Toolkit: A Guide to Work Placements and Apprenticeships' which detials our approach to engaging trainees on work placements.
EST is open to all Radian residents and is completely free of charge so whether you need help finding work, training, an apprenticeship or voluntary opportunity, EST can help you get ahead of the rest!
EST has training programmes in all four Radian areas and offer a CV writing service. The training covers a whole range of skills, accredited and non accredited courses such as:
- Employment Skills
- Basic and Intermediate IT Skills
- Door Stewarding/Supervising
- Basic First Aid
- Food Hygiene
- CSCS Card
- Health and Safety
- Empower to Self Employment
EST offers a bespoke job searching service, interview skills and can provide good quality second-hand business wear clothing (where available) for those with pending interviews.
EST also sources and supports work experience placements for residents both internal and external to Radian. Radian has partnered Prime Work programme provider A4e and sub-prime Wheatsheaf Trust, and as a result, has set up a number of work programme placements within the group. These placements are for long-term unemployed people and last for a six month period.
Once involved in the project you may find you would benefit from the aid of a volunteer; someone signposted to offer 1:1 support in pursuit of making positive changes. EST can match you with a local volunteer who can support you as much or as little as necessary. We treat everyone individually so that the service fully benefits YOU and your personal goals.
If you want to know more and get involved, please call our friendly team on FREE phone 0800 422 0570 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will guide you through.
