Works!

Heathfield and Hailsham Works!

Works! is our programme for 16-25 year olds living in isolated areas who have failed to make a successful transition from education to work.  These communities suffer from additional barriers including poor transport, lack of services and fewer job opportunities.  Works! is embedded in the community to better understand the needs of local employers so they can be matched with the skills and talents and interests of the young people.

Works! empowers young people to build their self-confidence and motivation to get and keep a job and become active and valuable members of the community.

Tomorrow’s People creates new employment opportunities locally by providing job matching for young people and employer networks.

Over 10 weeks, Works! delivers a mix of group activities and challenges in the community, alongside one-to-one mentoring. The emphasis is on personalised planning so that participants move into a job or the training programme that is right for them.

Since Works! was launched in Heathfield in  2011, we are proud that it has supported over 170 local young people with 92% completing the course and 90% of ‘completers’ moving into employment, further or education or training.

Once participants get a job, we continue to support them and their employers for at least a year to ensure that success is long term.
