What is the World of Work Academy?
World of Work Academy is a free scheme to give people who live in our homes a helping hand to find a job, or if you are already working, we can assist you to find additional hours or a better paid job.
If you are currently unemployed, you can gain assistance in the process of finding work and we can also offer you six months of paid work via our support and learn scheme. Your benefit payments will not be affected until you move into a paid position.
If you live in a St Leger Property and are looking to get back into work, please consider joining the World of Work Scheme as we can assist you with your search for new employment.
If you are 19 plus, in receipt of UC, JSA or ESA, live in the Doncaster Council area with another Social Housing Association or in private rented accommodation, we may be able to sign you up to one of our support and learn courses so please get in touch.
The World of Work Academy includes:
‘Support and Learn' Jobs - This scheme offers you a 4 week training course at Doncaster College followed by the potential of a PAID 6-month training contract within St Leger Homes. As well as earning a wage you will be given lots of support to build up your skills. You will also have the opportunity to apply for a CSCS card, a valuable and useful addition that many employers now request for working in various roles.
A new Cleaning course will be starting on Monday September 12th so please see the World of Work Opportunities page for details of this opportunity.
General Employment Assistance - If you join the scheme you will be helped with job searching, CV's and application forms and full interview preparation. We will also send you regular emails in relation to jobs and training in your areas of interest, many of which you may not be aware of. These emails can be useful as in effect we will be assisting you with your job searching.
The service we provide is free and voluntary and as the programme is flexible and supported by the Job Centre, we will tailor assistance to match your needs and requirements. General employment help can be offered at any stage and meetings can be held in your local community.
Once you have registered with us, we will get in touch and start to look at the options available, some of which include;
The WOW Academy has helped many tenants into work with others improving their skills and chances of employment and now is a great time to join. Why not apply and see what we can do for you.
