Virtual support for unemployed people during the covid–19 crisis

Virtual support for unemployed people during the covid–19 crisis
The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) offer a programme of free training and employability support to unemployed people or those working less than 16 hours/week. The ‘Training for Employment’ programme provides the skills and qualifications needed to move into employment or further training. It is suitable for starting new careers and for securing employment in these challenging times. During the covid–19 crisis we have changed our way of working to provide virtual support and training, which can be accessed from home.

TCV can provide support around many aspects of securing employment by phone, video conference and e–mail and can offer:

Help finding suitable job opportunities
Support with filling in job application forms
Help with creating a curriculum vitae (CV)
Interview support – help with preparation for an interview, for example, help with common interview questions
Advice on sources of help with barriers to employment, for example, housing problems or benefits
We can also provide virtual training courses in many key subjects. Because the courses are virtual, participants can train from home using a computer or smart phone. Examples of virtual training courses include:

Fire Safety
Manual Handling
Adult Safeguarding
Basic Food Hygiene
Child Protection
Control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH)
Working at height

TCV can provide virtual support and training across all of Northern Ireland. Contact one of our staff for further details:
