A TEN-WEEK course will help people get back in the employability game.
The Back in the Game programme is run by the Foundation of Light. It is under way but open to further entrants.
The ten-week employability programme runs over three days each week. Participants take part in exercises to develop their skills, attitude and physical fitness.
People on the programme are referred by Job Centre Plus to Foundation staff who then review their suitability before they start.
The programme offers participants a two-week work placement and chance to gain nationally-recognised qualifications in areas such as work skills, maths, English and first aid.
The programme is based at the Caterpillar Learning Centre at the Caterpillar Peterlee site.
