The Work Programme
You’re Better Off Working
- Are you ready to work but haven’t got the right skills?
- Is lack of work experience stopping you finding the job you want?
- Do you need help with practising for interviews or improving your CV?
- Do you know how to access the ‘hidden market’ for jobs?
- Do you want help in focusing your job search?
Uxbridge College welcomes you to its Work Programme service which will support you to find work. The Work Programme is a Government initiative that we provide on behalf of Jobcentre Plus. The programme is part of the Government’s plans to help the unemployed into work and get Britain working.
