We will be running small group workshops on either a one-off basis or mulitple-session programmes.

Signposting 
Careers Guidance 
 
 
We understand it is not always possible for our customers to attend workshops or 1-2-1 sessions because of health, mobility or caring responsibilities. So we will be offering an easy to access Virtual Support service for our customers across Devon and Somerset.
