Nottingham City Council and partners across the D2N2 region (Derby and Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire) have announced Way2Work; a new range of support activities for unemployed residents age 16+.

Way2Work is especially for people who are facing personal and economic barriers to finding a job such as lack of basic maths and language skills, single adult families, people from BAME communities, over 50s, and people with disabilities or health conditions which have a long-term and significant impact on their daily lives.

Way2Work will be delivered by twelve partner organisations across the D2N2 region:

Academy Transformation Trust
Community Action Derby
Community Training Portal
Derby City Council
Derby College Carole Peters 07710 365 790
East Midlands Chamber
Inspire (Nottinghamshire County Council)
Nottingham City Council, Targeted Family Support 0115 883 9782
Nottingham City Homes
Nottingham Jobs 0115 876 4508
The Prince's Trust


Way2Work will provide unemployed or inactive residents to access training which is specific to their individual needs and which will increase their current employment prospects by offering a broad range of support. This will include advice about self-employment, work experience opportunities and apprenticeships as well as basic skills, digital skills and functional English to support eligible non-English speakers.

Way2Work also offers life-skills support including financial advice and financial support for travel and childcare, route and travel planning plus financial support for work-travel to help individuals sustain their job or training placement once it starts.

Promotion of Way2Work will launch in March 2020 so look out for more information on NottinghamJobs Twitter and Facebook.
