Project 5

How Project 5 works

Project 5 is a free training programme to give individuals the skills and confidence to achieve their goals.

Taking place at our Petrus Hub, it will support participants to boost their self-esteem and help them to develop their employability skills such as CV writing, communication, and teamwork.

The programme uses a person-centred approach to empower participants to recognise that it is their direction, their choice, their future, their way and their journey.

Participants will be fully supported throughout the programme by an Employment Coach from The Learning Foundry and a Petrus Support Worker.

With Project 5, participants can learn at their own pace over their six month training journey, with continued support if they move into employment. 

Participants also get the opportunity to experience a work placement, learn new skills, feel more confident in themselves and get ready for work, as well as taking part in a residential trip to Trafford Hall in Cheshire.

The five modules will support and focus on the individual, including:
