We are grateful to our team of volunteers who have joined us for ‘Equipping Refugees for Work’ (ER4W) our employability training course. Volunteers have facilitated small group discussions and offered one-to-one mentoring support. This training restarts in September 2018 .
Some befrienders can have a mentoring type role if they are matched to a refugee who is seeking employment. This may involve a range of activities: some help to edit CVs and job application forms, others accompany a refugee on their first visit to a Job Club and one has helped his mentee in the process of becoming self-employed.
