Waitrose News Update: Rehabilitation Services For Young Offenders
Waitrose news update: the high-end supermarket have opted into a scheme to provide in-store opportunities for young offenders on rehabilitation programmes.
The schemes that have been rolled out across the UK are designed to assist young offenders who have served their time and are looking to rehabilitate. The idea is that they will be introduced into the work environment, learn the skills necessary for success and earn a little. It is part of the dedication demonstrated by the government for rehabilitating young offenders who have had a difficult history and need assistance to get back on the more appropriate path.
The scheme is in support on the Feeding Britain’s Future Skills for Work Month.
Waitrose News Update
The Waitrose Personnel team in Cambridgeshire are set to begin workshops, due to run on a monthly basis, that will provide information on the food industry, the job application process and generally provide assistance to those who are lacking those skills required for successful integration to the professional sphere. This will range to include everything including composing an appropriate curriculum vitae, the best ways to fill in application forms and how to impress at interview.
The scheme that’s being piloted in Cambridgeshire with HMP/YOI in Littlehey will be rolled out across the UK if they see that the efforts have been rewarded from all angles.
16-24 year olds who have for whatever reason had to spend time in the Young Offenders Institution have been targeted by Job Centre Plus who are aiming to support them and provide them with the skills necessary for integration into the workplace. Waitrose will be working with Job Centre Plus to offer mock interviews and CV writing guidance so that they can move on and become independent.
The benefit of it being Waitrose who are providing this guidance and assistance means those who are receiving the support are also privy to the specialised and elite knowledge that they have regarding meat, fish, cheese, wine and other products that allow for an quality.
Waitrose are committed to assisting young people in the work place and pride themselves on having more than 25% of their workforce in the age bracket below 25 years old. This means they have experience with the younger generations and can, in theory, therefore approach the more sensitive situation in the most appropriate way.
