The Brandwood Centre has successfully secured continuation funding from the Big Lottery Fund to enable us to deliver our Train-to-Gain programme offering back to work training, accredited courses, drop-in sessions and work experience for long-term unemployed/inactive and single parents.  By providing these services we aim to raise confidence, skills and knowledge and increase employability prospects.

If you are a single parent, or unemployed, take a look at what’s on offer below. You never know where it could take you!

Whilst the Centre remains closed, to protect both our staff and customers, we are still able to offer a selection of online courses and remote CV support to those who are single parents and/or unemployed/inactive.  Please see below for more details
