What does a CAP Job Club ‘look like’ and what do we offer?
Firstly, when job seekers arrive at 10.30am they will receive a quality welcome. Community time is first; this is a time for refreshments in a relaxed atmosphere, a chance to mingle and know they are not alone in their struggles.
Between 11am – 11.45am is when the business of club begins starting with a relevant ‘Steps to Employment’ video and a structured interactive time for the job seekers and the team.
Then the Job Club becomes dual purpose with some jobseekers looking for employment on the netbooks provided, or writing CVs or preparing covering letters (with support) while others have one to one coaching sessions.
The Job Club finishes at 12.30pm.
