CEDE Foundation

Employment and skills

At CEDE Foundation’s employability and skills programme help people to move on to employment, education, training or voluntary work in the community, bridges the barriers which prevent people from accessing learning or gaining employment, including lack of confidence and motivation, Low self-esteem.

We help people to gain qualifications which will help them secure employment. We also create opportunities to support individuals to gain employability skills and confidence through traineeships and apprenticeships as well as opportunities for both accredited and none accredited courses, including adult education. As an accredited provider of AQA Unit Award Scheme courses, CEDE Foundation supports young NEET as well as long-term unemployed, to build their confidence through various accredited training courses, helping young people to raise self-esteem.

Taking up work, whether paid or unpaid, or undertaking a full time education or training course, helps to increase people's confidence and self esteem; it integrates them into the community and makes it less likely that they will become homeless again in the future. Evidence from our learners shows that participation in our employability and skills development programme “Access to skills and training (Empowering people and communities)” extensively contributed to individual and community wellbeing.
