Building Better Opportunities - Connecting Choices Essex

Connecting Choices Essex is a partnership of five organisations managed by Ixion. The project is supporting people who are unemployed to move towards and into sustainable education, training or work.

Through ‘Connecting Choices’ we are offering a personalised coaching service.  With dedicated 1:1 support, our Advisors can help you to explore your options, gain new skills and take that next step towards a job or into training. Activities include confidence building, personal and social development, signposting and advocacy, and employability skills.

This service is being delivered in Clacton, Jaywick, Basildon, Harlow, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock.

If you live in one of these areas, are aged 16 years or over and not in education, employment or training, then get in touch to see how we can help you.
