    Serving up work skills

    This winter, our Food for Change programme can help with the skills you need to find, and stay in, work with our course of four sessions on employability skills. 

    We’ll show you how to succeed at writing CVs, searching for jobs, applying for roles and interview skills. We will also give you strategies and tips on how to sustain employment once you’ve found a new role. 

    The sessions will be led by Charlotte Trevenna, our support worker, and Matt Stewart, a trained chef who specialises in providing people with engaging work experience placements and taster days. At the end of each session, Charlotte and Matt will be providing one-to-one support for people who would like extra advice or information on the world of work.  

    Charlotte said: “We’re really looking forward to running these sessions and helping to give people the confidence to find jobs where they can thrive.” 

    In Truro, sessions will run every Monday from 21 January to 11 February. In St Austell, sessions will run every Wednesday from 23 January to 13 February. Dates in Newquay, Camborne, Pool and Redruth will be released shortly.  

    Each session lasts three hours, from 10am – 1pm. You can attend all four sessions or attend the ones that match your needs.  

    The sessions are completely free as part of the Food for Change programme, which helps people to learn new skills, meet new people and progress towards work through activities such as growing food and cooking healthy dishes. Anyone who is out of work can join Food for Change and gain access to a host of community-based activities, work placements, short courses and qualifications.
