The funding will enable 12 unemployed people from Herne Bay and Canterbury Job Centres to attend the training and work experience programme with Kent Enterprise Trust and local business partners with a range of workshops and accredited training courses, as well as one-to-one coaching/mentoring, giving local people the opportunity to improve their lifestyle, with more exercise and fresh air. They will have the chance to eat healthy produce grown in the community garden and plan to create a new butterfly bed with new Project Officer, Emily Hill.
Herne Bay’s county councillors, Brian MacDowall and Nicholas Bond are delighted to be supporting our programme and will play a vital role in handing out certificates at our Awards Ceremony for Improving Lives IV on the 23rd March 2017.
Recent funding has provided tools and equipment for use in the garden, and enabled beneficiaries to develop a dedicated ‘butterfly bed’. It has also enabled the Trust to appoint a new Project Officer for the community garden.
We can now offer new training opportunities at Kent Enterprise House including:
- Employment Rights 23/12/2017
- Emotional Needs 02/03/2017
- Health & Safety 09/03/2017

Please contact us to book a place, alternatively come and visit us either of our sites, we would be very happy to show you around.
“I feel that I have learnt a variety of skills and brushed up on important matters such as better interview techniques, tailoring my CV to the job that I am applying for. I also feel that the certificates that I have passed will help a great deal in getting employment. The staff at Kent Enterprise Trust have been very professional and helpful in getting me back on to the employment ladder”. Improving Lives beneficiary
