JETS – Job Entry Targeted Support Programme

It has been a tough year for everyone. However, New London Educational Trust (NLET) is working hard to help those in West London through our new office at the Lido Centre in West Ealing. It is from here we are pioneering the West London Alliance (WLA) and Shaw Trust Job Entry Targeted Support (JETS) programme for Ealing residents.

The WLA JETS programme, or JETS for short, is a COVID response programme to support people who are unemployed and in receipt of benefits to re-enter employment. It is a national contract; the Programme is working to help develop employment skills and capacity for those most affected by the pandemic.

NLET are providing the delivery for the London Borough of Ealing, which is designed to help residents gain employment through accessing a range of integrated employability support and personal development skills as well as information broadcasts.

The programme delivers light touch employment support linked to necessary vocational upskilling and reskilling opportunities to prevent individuals from becoming long term unemployed or economically inactive.

We aim to identify, and support participants to overcome, barriers to work as well as reviewing the current local labour market trends. A key aspect is helping residents recognise their transferable skills and discover career alternatives, especially for those most affected by the Covid pandemic.

We aim to provide participants with up-to-date employability tools and rekindle their motivation, drive and confidence. This support will enable more effective job searching activities and aid in their progress towards sustained employment.

Key Interventions available include:
• Employability skills training
• CV Sessions – entry, middle and senior levels
• Personal Development modules (Selling Yourself)
• Tailored support
• Post Covid-19 support
• One-to-one, group and remote training
• Participant forums including peer led discussions
• Employer Insight Sessions from Labour Market Analysis
• Broadcasts including NHS opportunities

The Lido Centre, from where NLET delivers its services in Ealing, is an administrative base for more than a dozen Ealing charities. It is a source of information and signposting for local residents, a venue for meetings, training and counselling as well as offering a friendly hand with development issues for Ealing communities. NLET is delighted to be partnered with the Lido Centre to widen our network of support for our participants. (#lidolife)

So, if this is the right opportunity for you or someone you know, please speak to your local Job Centre Work Coach and ask to be referred onto the JETS Programme.

We look forward to checking you in to your first-class flight on your JETS journey back to work!
