The JCP District of Glasgow, Lanarkshire and East Dunbartonshire (GLED) has listened to feedback given by employers in the area which suggests a significant number of claimants lack basic employability skills and qualifications, as well as an understanding of acceptable workplace behaviours. Additionally, it is recognised that general health and wellbeing issues can impact negatively on claimants motivation in today’s labour market. JCP GLED District, therefore, intends to use FSF monies to fund appropriate provision / training, which will have motivation and wellbeing via leisure activity at it’s core, in order to address these issues.
The principle aim of the provision is to ensure claimants are given a clear understanding of the fundamental qualities and behaviours they will be required to demonstrate in the workplace and how general health and wellbeing can influence matters, as well as some of the basic qualifications which will enable them to pursue appropriate opportunities in the labour market.
The successful Provider will therefore be required to deliver an intensive but flexible programme of training / support for appropriate pre and post Work Programme (WP) ESA claimants which will have motivation and wellbeing via leisure activity at it’s core.
The provision must retain a work focused perspective at all times. Therefore, in addition to the required leisure activity / activities referred to above, the Provider must strive to instil in claimants the necessary work ethic which is so valued by employers and which will ultimately help them to develop and secure appropriate employment.
