We are currently running a 3-week Intensive Support Programme (ISP) with Durham County Council and The Department of Work and Pensions, aimed at young people aged 18-24 living in County Durham who have been recently unemployed and are looking to boost their skills & confidence in the workplace. The programme includes an induction, 3-week programme covering topics such as: building confidence & resilience, creating your best ever CV, interview techniques, and much more. This is followed by 13 weeks of ongoing support from the CACD DurhamWorks team.
