The Making a Difference programme is designed to support over 12,000 unemployed or economically inactive participants in the North East and Leeds City Region of England, helping them to become either job-search ready or move into paid employment. Through Making a Difference, each participant will be supported by an employment coach, who will provide careers support, coaching and mentoring to help customers to make progress towards their learning and employment goals.
Our programme teams also work with local employers to provide access to a wide variety of employer-led activities, such as job tasters, conferences and jobs fairs, all to support each participant in getting closer to the job market.
The programme has been invaluable, and I would highly recommend it. The staff are approachable and supportive.
