for the over 18

Four weeks. Multiple industries. One amazing opportunity.

Take the first step – reshape your future with Pave Southend training

Working with employers from across the county, we’ve created a dedicated training programme to help those over 18 get back into employment. If you’re from Southend or surrounding areas, and are looking to learn new skills, explore a new industry and dive headfirst into training, this could be for you.

With industries such as education, childcare, IT, digital, business admin, hospitality and more on the table, there is a range of pathways to consider. We’ll give you hands-on employability training, take you through mock interviews and give industry-specific advice and guidance. We’ll even set you up a real interview with a local company, where possible.
