Kingdom Works, Kingdom Housing Association’s employability project, has celebrated supporting their 100th client through Skills Development Scotland’s Employability Fund since lockdown restrictions were eased.
Awarded 205 client spaces on the National Training Contract, the milestone means Kingdom Works has delivered almost half the annual contract volume in around 3 months.
Though the 2020/21 programme was initially delayed due to the pandemic, service adaptations and new processes allowed the team to deliver much needed support and training for clients during a period of unprecedented demand.
Partner training providers have also adapted to new guidance and implemented interim measures to allow industry specific training for clients of Kingdom Works to proceed.
Lynne Dunn, Kingdom Works Manager said, “Our Mission at Kingdom is to provide More than a Home and this is a good example of how we deliver on this, through added value in terms of the skills development and training we provide to tenants and people in our communities. We look forward to continuing to develop new and innovative ways to support the recruitment needs of our employers, while supporting those who need it most”
Further developments in programme delivery are on the horizon as the Government’s response to the levels of rising unemployment resulting from the pandemic continue to evolve so it is sure to be a very busy year for the team supporting those affected.
If you’re unemployed or have recently been made redundant, Kingdom Works can help you.
Based in Glenrothes from the Boston View Office on Boston Road, staff from the Kingdom Works Project support individuals from all over Fife into employment and training opportunities.
Clients will be offered tailored support to find suitable routes into employment and training, and the project offers careers information, advice and guidance.
