Hawick and District Job Club.


 Job Club Course in Burnfoot, Hawick.

Our Job Club course at Elim Community premises, previously  as part of CAP ( Christians Against Poverty) have been a success over the past 3 years, with all participants enjoying the course and mutual support in community time. Our partnership with CAP has now ended and we are grateful for all we have learned and the number of people helped in this period.  We now have our own course of 10 sessions in a new local format during this Tuesday morning slot.

Participants have come from the Burnfoot Community and beyond.

Pictured in the photo below are some participants who have completed the course, holding certificates to prove.

Previously the Job club course has had three main components:
1. Training Course,   2. Community Time,  3. One to one Coaching.
The Community Time and Coaching are an ongoing aspect of the Job Club all year round; we only stop for holidays and other special occasions. The Training Course goes for a period of 8 sessions and has to be done at least twice a year.
Here is the title for each session for the first course.
 Session 1 – Finding your motivation

Session 2 – Overcoming the obstacles 

Session 3 – Discovering your strengths 

Session 4 – Getting to know employers 

Session 5 – Writing CV’s & Applications 

Session 6 – Writing CV’s & Applications
