Learner Insight: Success from 50+ Job Club

Hart Learning + Development’s Employability team work hard to support our local community in engaging in work and exploring their full potential. Recently, they have seen success in the 50+ Job Club scheme, which seeks to help jobseekers over the age of 50 to explore new career opportunities.

Brenda joined the programme after being unemployed for a year. Through attending classes, working alongside her tutor Stephen, and unlocking new qualifications, Brenda has managed to successfully secure a new role with a local organisation and increase her confidence.


Reflecting on her journey with Hart Learning + Development, Brenda commented:


“It’s amazing what can happen in two weeks!


“I was offered a place on this two-week course to update my knowledge and skills in customer service, mental health, and employment skills to help me get back into the workplace.

“During the course of the programme, I was contacted by an agency on the very first Wednesday and had a telephone interview for a Mortgage Administrator vacancy. Fast-forward to the second Wednesday of the course, and I had a face-to-face interview at their head office, and on the very next day I was offered the job. I start in a week’s time.


“All of this could not have happened without the support of my tutor Stephen and the other course members giving me the necessary information and interview skills which helped to rebuild my self-esteem and confidence!”

Congratulations to Brenda on your achievement.
