Ways to Work is a local intelligence driven, comprehensive and integrated programme for young people and adults, designed to improve personal resilience and progress to sustainable employment.
Participants will access a suite of individually tailored products and services which will add value to mainstream provision, respond to employers needs and yield better outcomes. High quality information, advice and guidance will be available as well as transitional employment programmes and skills development.
The Ways to Work programme will work with people to help them into work through providing information, advice and guidance, work placements and targeted training. There will also be initiatives to specifically support vulnerable young people, and other vulnerable groups and people who are out of work. This provides a positive impact on our local communities, and the opportunity to gain employment, skills and training for participants.
Knowsley Works is part of the Liverpool City Region ESF Ways to Work Programme and is part-funded by the European Social Fund and Youth Employment Initiative.
