Get Set UK Newsletter February 2022

Welcome to your monthly newsletter

February was another successful month for supporting long-term unemployed people through the various Employment Programmes in London and West Sussex, as well as progressing customers through our Skills academies.

We assisted 296 of our participants into employment in February, and with only two months into the new year, this brings the year-to-date total to 612 participants in employment.

Well done to all our Employment Advisors, Admin Support, Trainers, ERMs, Tutors, Managers, and all our support teams.
