CLLD programmes in Hull & Scunthorpe.
These programmes for unemployed people aged over 18, first started in Hull back in 2018 and have since started across the water in Scunthorpe. They have been successful with a large majority of participants progressing into employment, further education, or training:
CLLD programmes (1-6) Hull
CLLD 1 & 2 The two of six programmes in Hull for long term unemployed in areas of need in Hull. These programmes commenced in August 2018 with the formal programme running until October and intensive move on taking place until November 2018. Work is continuing to support the members of these two groups and the outcome is very high with 21 participants now doing something positive.
CLLD 3 & 4 These two programmes started February 2019 and ended in May 2019. In CLLD3 – 6 participants entered employment or training with 2 further participants awaiting confirmation and 1 participant commencing volunteering. In CLLD4, 5 participants entered employment or education with a further 4 becoming volunteers or commencing further training in order to progress into their chosen future careers.
CLLD5 Started in June 2019 and ended September 2019. This programme was aimed at specific postcodes of Hull and included an 8-day sail. Since finishing the course, four participants have started courses at Hull College, up to now – two have gained employment and we are still working with the other participants to gain a successful outcome for them.
CLLD 6 Aimed at long term unemployed and economically inactive people from specific postcodes of Hull, this programme started in October 2019 and ends in December 2019 and includes the opportunity of an 8-day residential sail.
CLLD1 was aimed at long term unemployed and economically inactive people from specific postcodes of Scunthorpe, this programme ran until the end of August 2019. Two participants are in employment, three moved into further education, and one was offered eight weeks’ work experience in a local supermarket.
CLLD2 was also aimed at long term unemployed and economically inactive people from specific postcodes of Scunthorpe, this programme started in October 2019 and ended in December 2019 and included the opportunity of an 8-day residential sail.
Grimsby & Hull Veterans Programme
The Grimsby & Hull Veterans programme started June 2019 and ended in August 2019. As in the last Vets Group, the participants were mostly ex-Army, and with two RAF and two Navy with ages ranging between 30 and 59 years. Funding for the programme was received through the ABF Soldiers charity, RAF and Job Centre Plus on an individual basis. While the programme was running we encountered people with a multitude of issues which have come about due to their military service. The participants bonded well with plenty of cross service banter, supporting each other throughout the programme. Shortly after the programme finished, three participants gained employment, two moved into education/training. For some of the veterans our 16-week programme will be enough to address their needs, however there will be some participants that require a longer-term strategy from us and so a rolling programme has been implemented. Once CatZero always CatZero.
Grimsby Lone Parents Programme 2019
This 2019 programme was the third tailored version of our core programme designed for lone parents. The programme was designed to run just one day a week plus one to one reviews with all activities held during school hours. This started in September 2019 with the formal 12 weeks completing in December 2019 with additional move on support continuing after the programme end.
Grimsby NEETS Summer Programme 2019
This summer programme was aimed at young people not in Employment, Education or Training and was funded by a private donation. These participants also managed to sail from Brixham to Grimsby on the CatZero yacht. For more information about this group and their fantastic achievements see our December 2019 Newsletter.
Presentation and Introductory event – Team building activities where the young people are supposed to challenge themselves and meet other members of their team.
Delivery Programme – Delivered by CatZero staff along with partner organisations – fostering independence, trust, confidence and sustainability in an alternative learning environment conductive to young people’s needs. As an integral part of the programme the young people can gain up to seven qualifications.
Move On – Professional support and guidance, allowing young people to take the lead when making decisions about their future path. The challenges facing young people include finding work, moving away, accessing services, finding new friends etc. Making plans, solving problems, organising life and feeling competent and in control are vital ingredients to a successful adult life. These skills are generally developed by young people over an extended period, one challenge at a time with the support of our staff.
Residential Experience – Water based sailing challenge aboard a 72ft Challenge yacht. While on board, the Young People crew the boat with the assistance of a qualified crew on a four hour on, four hour off watch system for the full duration of the trip. Elements involved include preparation and cooking of meals, cleaning, helming the vessel, navigation, engineering, all alongside local business volunteers and mentors. Carrying out such a watch system becomes very disorientating, particularly through the night which pushes all crew members beyond their comfort zone enabling them to feel a sense of achievement and self-belief.
