Coordinated by the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA), hundreds of employment support centres and employers threw open their doors to raise awareness about what they do to help people into work.

London Learning Consortium, London Youth and Croydon Works in Croydon celebrated the work of their local staff and jobseekers by hosting Croydon Employability Day 2018. Staff used the day to showcase the successes of employment support in Croydon and the tremendous efforts made by the jobseekers they support.

Shereen is one jobseeker who the London Learning Consortium, Gatwick Airport and Croydon Works have helped into work through our joint One Destination Employability Programme delivered in partnership to provide a fully supported route to employment. London Learning Consortium, Croydon Works and Gatwick Airport offered Shereen a range of support, such as employability training, work vlacement, Volunteering, 1:1 support and guidance. Following this, Shereen was able to get back into employment with World Duty Free after nearly seventeen months unemployed.

London Learning Consortium, London Youth and Croydon Works and thousands of other organisations help transform the lives of jobseekers and their communities in their local area. UK Employability Day is a crucial day of recognition for the employment support sector and underlines the critical work of providers.
