Office Skills

We learn the kind of work you would do in a real job

Interested in gaining experience in an office?

Our Office Skills project is located within our Head Office at Fieldway.  Trainees will work in a busy environment supporting the organisation with different admin responsibilities.  Working in a real work setting supported by a lead member of staff the trainee’s are able to gain valuable experience for tools needed to work in an office.

Why an office?

Training in a real office can be a valuable experience to the individual as they are able to work toward qualifications and goals that could help them move into volunteering opportunities or paid work.

It can also be beneficial to those who aren’t able to work giving them a real sense of purpose and achievement to their lives, being a part of the important day to day tasks of a busy workplace.

 

Trainees attend the Office Skills project from 9am -3pm
