Merseyside Expanding Horizons Senior Pass Employability Programme. Supporting experience
During the development and delivery of Senior Pass Project, Merseyside Expanding Horizons engaged hard to reach communities across Merseyside at local, national and international level. Senior Pass E-portal was developed to support experienced 50 plus year olds to support the transfer of skills into existing or new areas of professional specialisms. Participants were recruited from hard-to-reach and one of the most deprived communities nationally, with the support of Toxteth Job Centre, Wheel Meet Again, South Liverpool Community Transport, Merseyside African Elders, Mary Seacole House Women’s Mental Health Services. Together, candidates were referred to our programme, taking into consideration the issues and employment needs of candidates and the barriers obstructing Senior’s access to employment.
Our joint partnership approach gave participants opportunities to discuss with keyworkers, support workers , Employment coach and Job Centre Advisors to define what aspects of personal development needed improvement or adapting to the new job demands and changes.
We initially, ran introductory sessions at our partner organisation offices, talking to service users to ascertain what they wanted to achieve from the course.
