Journey to Employment (J2E)
We are pleased to announce that:
mosaic: shaping disability services has been successful in becoming the chosen provider by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) to deliver the Journey to Employment (J2E) project.
The Journey to Employment project is for disabled people in the Leicester City and County areas to help them to move closer to employment by providing person centred training courses via the provision of employment support and peer support.
If you were awarded ESA and placed in the Work Related Activity Group or Universal Credit and have limited capability for work from 3rd April 2017 onwards and want to improve your chances of finding paid employment please contact us on 0116 2318720 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Please quote ‘J2E Project’.
The J2E Project will run for 1 year with an intended start date of 10th July 2017. Courses will run for a 12 week period, with 8 training periods throughout the year. You will have to attend training/ workshops once a week for 12 weeks (up to 4 hours) where you will be supported and trained by our Community Employment Specialist and others and also have access to regular Job Club support thereafter.
If you work with disabled people and want to refer someone into J2E who you think can benefit from the J2E Project, please contact us to request a J2E referral form and we will be in touch with you once this referral from is returned back to us.
The J2E Project will be run from our City Centre location at Voluntary Action Leicester (VAL), 9 Newarke Street, Leicester. LE1 5SN.
