Career and skills help if you're on Income Support (Get Ahead)

​​​​​About Get Ahead

Get Ahead can help you if you’re on Income Support and want to:

  • develop and progress your career
  • develop your skills and confidence
  • earn more money

You can take part if you’re already working your required hours or are not required to work.​

We can help you with:

  • funding towards training, development, and qualifications 
  • career advice and guidance 
  • job searching and applications 
  • CV and cover letters 
  • money management 
  • childcare advice and options
  • Health and wellbeing 
  • planning for the future

Get Ahead is different to Back to Work. We are optional and your benefits won’t be affected if you take part or not.

If you need support with something else, contact us as we may be able to help you.

For more information email or call +44 (0) 1534 447589.
