Accelerate helped me take the first step towards finding a job. I’ve got my confidence back.
What is Accelerate?
Accelerate is a free employment support service that can build your confidence, help with training, improving your skills and providing valuable work experience – all geared towards helping you find a job that suits you.
If you are unable to look for work at the moment due to health, parenting or other responsibilities, Accelerate can still help you to build your skills, confidence and support you with gaining qualifications, taking courses and becoming work ready for the future.
We specialise in supporting people who would like to work but for various reasons find it hard to get a job and enjoy all the benefits that employment brings. We offer practical help to deal with problems that have been holding you back including support with budgeting and saving money as well as covering the costs of childcare, Internet costs whilst taking our courses and subsidised travel while you're accessing our service.
If you live in Coventry or Warwickshire and are currently unemployed or economically inactive, find out how we can help you.
Accelerate is a partnership of local organisations providing co-ordinated employment support to people who are at a disadvantage when looking for work.
Our partnership includes training providers, charities, housing associations, disability support, women’s only services, well-being and mental health organisations, enterprise start-up, childcare providers, local authorities, community radio and employer networks.
