Training for Community Employment Advisers

This course has been designed and will be delivered by the VWP and aims to provide delegates from community groups with the skills to be pro-active in raising employment rights issues in their groups and encouraging and supporting group members to pursue their rights and seek advice about their employment rights issues.

We will also seek to build the capacity of the community to address their employment issues by encouraging people, through their trained delegates, to, first, seek advice within their own community. We will provide training in basic employment rights to support this.

The VWP will also provide support through

  • providing an on-going back-up advice service 
  • supporting delegates through observation at sessions
  • holding regular group meetings to discuss issues
  • providing monitoring materials and system
  • paying volunteers’ expenses.

Further details of the training can be obtained by contacting Bob Blyth, Project Manager (020 7467 1355, or
