We are  dedicated to empowering individuals in West London to reach their full potential. Our GROW program, established in collaboration with SEGROplc, is a shining example of this commitment. This program specifically targets young people in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hounslow, Haringey, Hackney, and Waltham Forest, who are either unemployed or looking to re-enter the workforce.

Let’s delve deeper into how the GROW program equips young people with the necessary skills and confidence to thrive in today’s job market.

Building a Strong Foundation

The GROW program recognizes that a successful job search goes beyond simply submitting applications. It provides participants with the essential tools to craft compelling CVs and cover letters that effectively showcase their qualifications and experiences. Participants also gain valuable interview preparation, learning to confidently present themselves and their skills to potential employers.

Equipping for Diverse Opportunities

The program goes beyond traditional office-based careers. It acknowledges the growing demand for skilled workers in the construction sector. To bridge this gap, the GROW program offers participants the opportunity to obtain a CSCS course qualification. This certification enhances their employability in the construction field, opening doors to a wider range of career options.

Connecting with Employers

Finding the right job often hinges on establishing connections with potential employers. The GROW program understands this, providing participants with access to a dedicated job search platform. This platform connects them with relevant job openings that match their skills and interests.

A Story of Transformation

Our client Ewa’s story exemplifies the transformative power of the GROW program. She describes herself as lacking motivation and direction before joining the program. The program not only equipped her with practical skills like CV writing and interview techniques, but more importantly, it bolstered her self-confidence. Ewa emerged from the program feeling empowered and ready to take on the job market. With newfound confidence and a strong skillset, Ewa secured a coveted position at Samsung, impressing her employer from the very start. She says:

“ I was tired of thinking I was inadequate and uncapable.  I was not motivated to apply for jobs.  My family were always trying to help me.  I decided to find myself but didn’t know how and from where to start.  The employability program was a turning point in my life. It not only provided me with the skills and knowledge I needed to find a job, but it also instilled in me the confidence to believe in myself. I am grateful for the support and guidance I received throughout the program, and I am excited to see where my career takes me from here. With AWL’s help and support, I’m confident to say now “I can succeed”

Empowering the Next Generation

The GROW program is a beacon of hope for young people in West London, providing them with the roadmap they need to navigate the job market with confidence. Through this program, AWL is not only shaping individual futures, but also contributing to a more skilled and prosperous workforce in the region.
