The Broadening Horizons Theme is all about offering local training, employment support and volunteering opportunities for Prospect Estate residents. We’ve put together a number of activities for Prospect residents young and old, including:
Family Fun Day
In October 2015 PEBL held a Family Fun Day at Cherrywood School. Nearly 300 PEBL residents enjoyed various fun educational activities such as messy science, designing computer games, crafts like block printing and making paper lanterns, learning to cook, doing dance and drama, playing table tennis and boxing!
PEBL Skills Café
Our PEBL Skills Café advisors have helped many Prospect Estate residents get the training they need to find employment, as well as helping with job searching and finding work. The Skills Café also provides volunteering opportunities that help equip job seekers with experience that employers want to see. Come along for practical advice on how to apply for jobs, CV writing, using a computer, how to find training opportunities and much more. Free advice and free refreshments! Every Wednesday 10am – 3.30pm at the Prospect Community Centre.
PEBL attended the school summer fayres at St Bernadette’s, Cherrywood Infants and Grange Junior School in summer 2016. We met local children and their parents and told them what PEBL does and how all can be involved. The PEBL team gave away freebies to the children, including running a free prize draw to win a brand new bike which was won by Millie-Jo Prosser, a pupil from St Bernadettes.
Rushmoor Employment and Skills Zone brochure
For the past couple of years, PEBL’s paid for the Rushmoor Employment and Skills Zone brochure to be delivered to every house on the Prospect Estate! This outlines employment and training support for people in Rushmoor, with training and development opportunities ranging from computer skills and how to get a job to painting! It also covers such things as how to get online and what’s on at the library.
