Interviews take place every Tuesday and Thursday at the College and on various days onsite at your local jobcentre. Alternatively if you have recently issued (within the past 12 weeks) confirmation of your benefits you can call 01223 418778 and book yourself in for an interview.
During your interview you will recieve 1-2-1 information, advice and guidance session to advise and look at options for learning, training and employment. Your interview will last up to 90 minutes.
