Job Seekers

Helping you improve your employability

Back2Work

Steadfast Training is delivering the Back2Work programme for long-term unemployed jobseekers and those aged 50 and above in various locations across the West Midlands and East Anglia.

The support we provide to customers through this DWP-funded scheme to help them secure employment is delivered over a 6-8 week period, comprising classroom-based and 1-2-1 sessions, and includes:

  • A full diagnostic interview to assess employability, employment related activity, transferable skills;

  • Identifying primary and secondary barriers and addressing these with a solution focussed approach;

  • Development of an individual, realistic, time bound, action plan, to help remove barriers to employment, realistic career/work planning with goals and milestones based on the local labour market;

  • Sessions that challenge negative attitudes to finding work;

  • Supporting people to be proficient and self-sufficient in job hunting, both clerical and digital, and to produce an effective CV.

All individuals undergo a thorough in-depth assessment of their skills, including functional skills (English and Maths), their individual learning styles and any additional support requirements they may have to help them secure and sustain employment.

Our Employer Engagement Executives (EEE) will work closely with employers to understand a business, their workforce and culture and what they are looking for in new recruits. We screen and select the right candidates from a pool of individuals and match their skills and experience to the specific recruitment needs of a business.

If successful at the interview stage, we support candidates and employers throughout the induction process and keep in touch with both through those important first weeks, up to three months, while employees settle into their new team.
