The Women’s Work Lab new September Programme

Hi There,

Following the success of our last Bristol programme, I wanted to let you know that the Women’s Work Lab is opening applications for the September 2022 Bristol programme this week. If you are not familiar with our work we support unemployed mums receiving benefits to become work ready.

Just to briefly introduce myself and share my success with you. My name is Samantha and I am one of the Women’s Work Lab’s Programme Manager’s. I completed the Women’s Work Lab’s first programme in 2020 and this role is now my third role since finishing the programme. To introduce the programme: our bespoke classroom training and work placements focus on building confidence, ambition and employability skills. We specialise in unlocking potential and laying the foundations for a brighter future.

Outcomes for participants include new careers, positive role modelling for their families and communities and the creation of a vital support network.

Applications are currently open and we would love to hear from any women who you are connected with that you think would be a good fit. We are keen to reach out to as many community groups as possible to hear from women who may be interested in taking part. Typically we work with mums who have experienced barriers to work such as lone parenting, domestic abuse, poor mental health or children with additional needs.

There is plenty of information on our website please also find attached an FAQ doc that we would be grateful if you could share in your networks. We do encourage any interested applicants to apply at their earliest convenience ready for us to complete our shortlisting process. We will hold informal interviews to those shortlisted before formally offering places.

The main things you need to know:

Course Dates

The Bristol September programme will start week commencing 26th September and will be held in a central location (near the fountains) for easy access for travel to and from the programme. Once the location has been confirmed, Sophia who is our team administrator will be in touch with some leaflets that we would be grateful if you could share with your networks and on social media. We can also provide some paper copies if this is useful to you too.

· Free 12 week part time programme

· We are open to mums who have been out of the work place for a year or more and are currently in receipt of Universal Credit (or comparable benefits).

· Applications welcome from across Bristol

· If you have younger children the job centre may be able to help with additional childcare via the Flexible Support Fund. Speak to your job coach.

· Travel expenses provided for the training and work placements

· We are recruiting 15 women on to the first cohort.

· Mums can apply via our website www.womensworklab.co.uk

Having personally gone through the training detailed above, I can vouch for how brilliant it is! My two sons are extremely proud to see their mum working and my whole life situation, mindset and family has changed dramatically for the better. It is like a movie and the ending is so wonderful, that the joyful teardrops arrive!

Please let me know if you have any questions. I would also be very happy to set up a call to tell you and your team more about the programme so do let me know if that would be helpful.

Best Wishes,

Samantha.
