Classic & Sportscar Centre/Malton Coachworks support 'The Resco Employability Programme'

Published: 21-Jan-16

Classic & Sportscar Centre/Malton Coachworks are proud to announce a 12 month Corporate Partnership with Resco, a social impact business, using business to create positive change in communities.

Resco are passionate about using business to break social injustice, giving people tools to transform their lives, gain employment and a renewed sense of purpose.

On the 20th January 2016 part of our management team visited Resco's two business operations in the London area to see the work they are carrying out. The Resco programme provides participants with the opportunity to work three days a week over a 16 week period in one of their business enterprises. 65% of their graduates go into employment having completed the programme. The programme benefits the participants by providing relevant work experience giving participants renewed confidence and a good reference from a local employer. Training alongside their work experience is also given, which includes CV writing, interview skills and QCF qualifications in various related areas such as manual handling and health and safety. Participants also receive tailored one to one support to include mentoring, IT support, literacy and mock interviews.

Over the past three months, our involvement with Resco has provided two places on the programme, this equates to 620 hours of work experience, a 62% increase in confidence. This has led to 5 hours of literacy training, a 39% increase in motivation to find employment. The impact from our partnership has enabled 4 participants completing accredited training modules, a 55% increase in social interaction and finally 25 hours of 1-1 support.
