The Work Programme

TBG Learning delivers the government’s Work Programme, providing a range of support, guidance and employability training to unemployed people across Wales and the South West of England.

We work with people to help them find employment in an industry that they’re interested in, supporting them though the job search and application process, and providing any specialist support, information, advice and guidance that they may need to tackle any difficult, personal problems or barriers to work that they may have.

If you’ve been unemployed for three months or more you may be eligible to be referred to the Work Programme by Jobcentre Plus. We’ll work with you on many things, like writing a good CV, approaching employers, and because we have links with many local businesses we can organise a work placement so you can gain some on-the-job experience; or trial a job before you make the decision to come off benefits and go into work. We don’t just want to help you find work, we’ll continue to work with you, for up to two years if needed, to make sure you’re happy in your new job and stay in work.

If you want to know more about the Work Programme and how you can sign-up, then you need to contact your local Jobcentre Plus as they will need to refer you.

TBG Learning delivers the Work Programme on behalf of Rehab JobFit.

After three years of struggling to make it through to interview stages, I had three lined up in as many weeks! What I like about the service TBG offers is that the support is tailored to each individual person, so you’re not made to feel like just another person looking for a job.
