Explore skills and employability in the Dearne

Are you looking for a new direction, a fresh start, or to develop your skills? Do you want to learn something new, find a job, or get involved in your community?

If that sounds like you, join us on Thursday 18 April to explore your options for learning, training, work and volunteering.

From 9.30am to 3pm, you can visit different venues around Goldthorpe market to see what's possible. Everyone is welcome to attend the event, no matter your background or starting point.

On the day, you can explore options and support to build your future, your way. Come along to:

  • Meet some employers at the market stalls on the Horse and Groom Square. They can share information about what it’s like to work in a range of sectors. They also have advice about how to get started and insight into training or qualifications that can help.
  • Discover learning, skills and qualification options at Goldthorpe Library.
  • Have a coffee and chat while getting to know some of the services and organisations that could support you at Goldthorpe Salvation Army.

Kathy McArdle, Service Director for Regeneration and Culture, said: “This is a great chance to see what’s possible, get advice, and boost your confidence. It’s really important that Barnsley residents know what’s available, so they can benefit from improved skills and employability.

Our teams and partners are looking forward to meeting you at this event to share information about how you can develop skills that can help in everyday life. Their support and guidance can make a big difference to enable people to set and achieve their own goals for life and work. Please do come along and get the most out of this event.”

If you can’t make the event in April, you can still get in touch with the skills and employability team for information, advice and guidance. Visit Barnsley.gov.uk/SkillsAndEmployability to find out more. Please complete the online form to get in touch with an advisor.
