If you’re a care and support customer

We have developed an approach especially for you.

We want to help everyone realise their aspirations. We recognise that some of our care and support customers face multiple barriers towards getting a job.

To help, we developed the Employment Action Toolkit. The toolkit also comes in a second version for customers affected by learning disabilities.

We train our support workers to help you use the toolkit to identify:

  • actions you can take to increase your chances of getting a job
  • barriers to work that are, and are not, within your control
  • additional employment support you may need

Use this toolkit to write your plan of action into employment. We can also provide you with training to help you get a job, including building up soft skills to help with confidence and assertiveness.

For more information, please call us on 0300 123 3456 or speak with your support worker.

Frequently asked questions

What are soft skills?

Communication skills, a positive attitude and self-confidence are three examples of soft skills. You can’t get certificates for them: but employers put a lot of value in them, and will test them at interview through questions and tests.

What’s accredited learning?

Accredited learning means that there is a formal recognition of your learning, with some form of assessment being carried out to ensure you’ve met nationally defined standards.

Examples of accredited learning include NVQs or City and Guilds.

These vary from region to region, but include:

  • food safety in catering
  • health and safety in the workplace
