Purpose

An opportunity for training and community

The third core element to our services focuses on offering training and purpose for those we have built up a relationship with and are motivated to learn, develop and find employment. Each trainee has a personal development plan. It may take time to build up someone’s confidence before they start to believe in themselves and their talents and abilities.

Trainee Personal Development Plan

Each of our trainees are individuals and as such they have their very own unique individual training plan. We have a trainee agreement which is a signed document of understanding between the trainee and the charity. Each plan has specific goals and aims plus records achievements.

Trainee Aspiration Pot

Our TAP is a pot set aside as a reward for our trainees for their work. So each trainee can access the TAP for their needs or development. The money can be used to help finance housing, training, driving lessons or an IT course for example.
