LU collab lockup_V3_CB

Exploring Employment Hull is a community focussed skills and employment programme, funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. It is aimed at economically inactive and unemployed adults and young people (aged 16+ years) living in Hull. The programme aims to progress beneficiaries into employment or further learning by providing a support package, e.g., debt advice, mental health issues, personal development, social activities, employability skills, volunteering, work experience, ESOL, ICT/digital skills, literacy and numeracy support, occupational specific qualifications, and job search.

Each beneficiary receives support from a named keyworker and a personalised programme that meets their needs. The service is delivered by local voluntary and community partner organisations across the city of Hull – it is free of charge for the beneficiary. Although there is no set time limit for support on the programme, most beneficiaries are expected to complete and/or progress within 6 months
