The Women's Work Lab - Spaces Available for April 2024



The Women's Work Lab are recruiting for their April 2024 Bath programme, supporting unemployed mums receiving benefits to become work ready and are thrilled to be offering more opportunities this year. 

Their bespoke classroom training and work placements focus on building confidence, ambition and employability skills. The Women's Work Lab specialises in unlocking potential and laying the foundations for a brighter future.

Outcomes for participants include new careers, positive role modelling for their families and communities and the creation of a vital support network.


Applications are open now and The Women's Work Lab would love to hear from any women who you are connected with that you think would be a good fit. They are keen to reach out to as many community groups as possible to hear from women who may be interested in taking part. Typically they work with mums who have experienced barriers to work such as lone parenting, domestic abuse, poor mental health or children with additional needs. 

 

There is plenty of information on the website. The Women's Work Lab will be following a shortlisting process for all applications which will then be followed up with an informal interview before formally offering places on the programme.
