The Skills Training and Reintegration (STAR) Project focuses on supporting survivors of human trafficking and modern slavery on their journey towards employment and integration in the UK.
The project started in November 2020 and is helping survivors to overcome barriers to employment by providing them with skills development training and personalised employment support. Working alongside survivor care organisations who can refer eligible people to the project, up to 30 survivors will be provided with training and support during the project. The training is delivered to three groups of up to 10 survivors over a period of three months per group. The skills development training programme includes:
Digital Skills | Employment Skills | Life Skills
Alongside the skills development programme, personalised employment support will be provided to individual survivors to access vocational training opportunities, prepare CVs, apply for jobs or access job placement and volunteering opportunities. Survivors will also receive support to overcome practical barriers which may prevent them from entering the labour market such as: access to devices and data, childcare support, transport support as well as wider forms of support covering other aspects of their lives from their referral organisations. The project will run until to 31 October 2021.
