Renaisi has been commissioned by 3SC to help parents, of children aged between 6 months and 11-years-old in South West London, to find and sustain employment that suits their family situation and career aspirations.

3SC feel that Renaisi will be an excellent additional partner as they already deliver services across London. Renaisi particularly specialise in joining up employment programmes with communities and offer a community inclusion approach that reduces isolation, improves wellbeing and connects people.

The programme, funded by the Greater London Authority (GLA) from European Social Funds, is for parents who are low paid or underemployed.

Secure and sustainable employment is essential for anyone trying to build a better life for themselves and their family but with the pressures of a young family, it can be hard to find time to focus on your career. Through the Parental Employment Programme participants will benefit from a personalised needs assessment and training plan to gain the skills employers expect.

The free support includes IT and digital skills training, access to Level 2 or above accredited training or, addressing career barriers, and guidance on finding and securing sustainable work, this will also include in-work support for up to 6 months. For parents who are already in work, coaching and mentoring support will help them take the next step in their career, whether that’s promotion, taking on more hours or finding better-paid employment.
