Riverside Training – Yorkshire

Are you looking for a little support to get back into work? We're here to help!


We’re working with Riverside Training to offer customers aged 25+ in Sheffield, Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham free employability support.

The support is available for those in the areas above via two routes – those who are job ready, and support for those with complex needs and additional barriers further away from the labour market.

Accelerate Boost

This is up to 8 weeks long where Riverside Training will work with those who are more job ready and just need some additional support in finding the right job. They will help identify vacancies for the type of jobs that they think they are suited for, whilst also looking at their skill set and seeing where these skills may be transferrable into a job they didn’t think they could secure. They will work with local employers and help them with their applications and interviews.


This is up to 40 weeks long where Riverside Training will work with those who have multiple and complex barriers. This can include those with physical and mental health conditions, those who have been long-term unemployed and are disengaged. They will take a different approach with this group creating a longer-term support plan that ensures participants identify, develop and own their support journey and solutions. They will not dictate what they need to do to overcome their barriers but help them to see their potential, the opportunities and the way forward – by doing this they will be able to learn, build skills, confidence and resilience which will further support them as they continue into their learning, employability and work journey.

As part of the service, Riverside Training can provide Guinness customers with the following:

  • Employability Skills
  • C.V writing
  • Confidence Courses
  • Resilience and Coping Strategy course
  • Interview Skills
  • Health and Wellbeing course
  • Creative Course
  • Basic I.T skills
  • One to one support back into work.

We hope this meaningful support will help improve our customer’s lives.
