Employment successes for Going the Extra Mile (GEM) project
Congratulations to Deaf participants who completed their hearing awareness workshop last week. The workshop was part of the Going the Extra Mile (GEM) project which is helping disadvantages people into employment. The workshop was a training exercise to understand networking situations and all the participants excelled themselves, and as a result, shor
tly after the workshop one obtained a job offer and another completed a job interview yesterday. Another participant obtained a voluntary work placement and lastly, another gained a work experience placement at a local prestige car showroom.

This is a huge achievement for everyone involved. Well done.

The Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Project aims to engage with and support individuals in Gloucestershire who are currently dealing with circumstances that are potentially causing barriers to work and move those people closer towards education, training, volunteering or work, including self-employment. 

This programme is a unique partnership of community based organisations, managed by Gloucestershire Gateway Trust on behalf of Gloucestershire County Council. 

The GEM Project is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund. For more information, please visit glosgem.org.
