Building Better Opportunities

 

 

 

 

As part of the building better opportunities Key Changes will offer gender specific employment, training and support packages to increase employability and skills for women. These will include;

  • Short accredited beauty courses, designed for those interested in the beauty industry
  • A full NVQ level 2 beauty qualification, women will work towards this alongside a placement programme in our salon
  • Women will also be provided with support to create their very own business plan, NVQ accredited, in order to create self employment opportunities.

All of which are supported by our mentors, who personally assist in every part of the project. Our three projects are aided by the Building Better Opportunities Service.

Building Better Opportunities – Sheffield City Region (BBO SCR) is an integrated, person-centred employment service for people with physical and mental health conditions, learning disabilities and complex needs. It’s based on Individual Placement Support, a “place then train” approach that’s shown to be twice as effective as traditional approaches. The BBO SCR Partnership will support 642 adults over the next 2 years to find competitive employment and training opportunities. BBO SCR has received £2.7million of funding from the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England.
