The range of services on offer at the Employment Academy continues to expand with the launch of a new scheme aimed at supporting long-term unemployed and economically disadvantaged people back into work, bringing the total number of services now running at the Employment Academy to ten.

The new advice and guidance drop-in service run by Thames Reach will help long term unemployed men and women get specialist one-to-one jobs and work advice.

Thames Reach’s Employment and Resettlement Manager Rashpal Panesar said: “This new service will compliment the wide range of employment related projects and schemes running at the Employment Academy. It’s great to see so many of our service users already benefiting from the Employment Academy and getting closer to work.”

The advice and guidance drop-in launch date is yet to be confirmed. Times and dates will be added to the Employment Academy website as soon as they are available.
