Christians Against Poverty (CAP)

January 23, 2024

CAP is running their first Steps to Employment course of the year commencing 31st January – the course runs over 6 sessions in Kirkintilloch Baptist Church each Wednesday 10am-12pm.

Perhaps someone you know may have been out of work for some time, perhaps recently unemployed or out of the workforce with caring responsibilities for some time – then this course could be perfect for them.

Is this course different? Well we do focus on CV’s, applications and interview readiness but perhaps more importantly we spend time thinking about:

– Motivations and barriers to work

– Finding (or perhaps rediscovering) strengths, skills and experiences

– Encouraging everyone that they are unique, special and valued by God
