Eastleigh Borough Council Prepares 3-Session Employment Course

PONToon partners Eastleigh Borough Council are preparing to deliver a 3-session employment course in collaboration with DA Training & Consultancy in late February and early March as part of the PONToon project. 

The course aims to upskill women aged 18-35 in Eastleigh Borough and the surrounding area by providing them with important employment skills that will hopefully help them to find a job.

The first session, at 1pm - 3pm on the 24th of February will be an informal session aimed at letting participants get to know the workshop leader and voicing any problems they may have had with job seeking in the past. 

The workshop leader will use this feedback to tailor the contents of the following sessions to the group's needs.

The second and third sessions, on the 2nd of March 1-3pm and 5th of March 9:30 - 11:30am will then focus on digital job skills, with two of the sessions focusing on CV writing and filling out online application forms.

As part of the course, participants will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the digital tools being developed by PONToon to support women across the South of England and northern France in improving their own employment situations.
