Having secured a place on warehouse work training programme yesterday I was plagued with phone calls all morning from the course organizers and my welfare officers calling to remind me to attend and not forget my proof of identity documentation as if Iā€™d forget anyway. The rest of the day was just ordinary. Arthur Chappell

I need to get on one of these training things. Does the job centre help anyone without a job or only those on jsa or similar?

they should help anyone without work @Mike197602 - if you are entitled to benefits you should claim them. The courses are often mandatory rather than offered - If I fail to attend on Monday my benefits would be stopped

@arthurchappell i won't be able to get benefits for a few years yet as i've some savings and theyre above what you're allowed. Even though they're mandatory I bet it was quite nice to do something a bit different...which is why I think i'll go to the job centre in the next week or so and hopefully they'll send me on something similar. I've applied for lots of jobs now and don't hear back which is because of my record i think...i expect the job centre could send me somewhere where they aren't bothered about that sort of thing.

@Mike197602 it may well be worth seeing what you are entitled to but many of their training and job search programmes are limited - half the time is spent creating / revising CV resumes

our days are what we make them - it wasn't a bad day for not being dynamic, just not one leaving me much to write about
