Helping you into training and employment

We know Covid-19 has had an impact on secure employment in our local communities and we’re here to help. Inspire Culture, Learning and Libraries has joined partners across the region to support unemployed residents, especially those facing barriers to find a job, through a new programme called Way2Work.
