Craven College is working in Partnership with Keighley Town Council and Highfield Community Association to deliver two Community Led Local Development (CLLD) projects. Keighley Works and Keighley Neighbourhood Hubs are two exciting new projects that help people living in the CLLD areas* not in work to overcome barriers and move closer to employment and training. They have been funded by the England European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020, Bradford Council, Craven College and Keighley Town Council.

Keighley Works

Keighley Works offers one to one support to individuals aged 19+. An experienced Keyworker will help them develop a Personal Development Plan which aims to improve their confidence and develop skills that will increase their chances of gaining employment. The project can help with:

  • Putting together a CV and job searching
  • 1:1 and small group English and maths
  • Managing finances
  • Support for childcare and travel so that individuals can attend courses and interviews
  • Gaining more skills and training to move closer to employment
  • Volunteering and mentoring opportunities
  • Enrolling on training courses

Keighley Works is available to anyone living within the CLLD areas*, aged 19+, not in paid work, in receipt of benefits and who has lived in the UK for at least 3 years.
