Tailored training and support in Wiltshire and West Midlands

The Restart Scheme has been commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions and will give Universal Credit claimants who have been out of work for between 12 to 18 months enhanced, bespoke support to find work in West Midlands and Swindon. The scheme is part of the Government’s ‘Plan for Jobs’.

The Restart Scheme will break down employment barriers that could be holding them back from finding work. Go Train will work with employers, local government and other partners to deliver tailored support for individuals.

I’ve just finished my English Level 2 and I’m waiting for my Math course. I have to admit that this is the best course I have ever had and it took lots of work.

The Tutor was very professional, but friendly. I had lots of materials and samples to use throughout my course. Whenever I needed additional help or I had some questions, my Tutor was easily available with extra information in hand.

At last, but not least, my speaking and listening exam was the best experience I’ve ever had. I have to say “wow” and congratulations for the great form! For me five plus starts!
