Back in the Game

FREE Adults Employability Programme

Our free and unique employability programme is designed to support jobseekers across the North East in finding work by raising skills and confidence while assisting learners throughout the application to work process.

Designed to increase motivation and self-esteem amongst participants, our interactive Back in the Game course consists of a mixture of classroom, practical and physical activities designed to enable participants enhance their employment prospects.

Delivered from the Stadium of Light and the Foundation's outreach sites across the North East, the programme has helped more than one in three learners find a job during or within six weeks of finishing the course with local businesses.


In 2015, Back in the Game was awarded the National Project of the Year prize as part of Adult Learners Week for its remarkable achievements.


You will receive:

  • Nationally recognised qualifications
  • Help with CV writing, job seeking, interview techniques and application support tailored to your needs
  • Real job opportunities matched to your skills and experience


Back in the Game definitely helped me learn more about me as a person.

A job opportunity came up and I thought, 'Nothing ventured, nothing gained'. I couldn't believe I was offered the job but if it wasn't for Back in the Game I wouldn't have even filled out the application form.

Foundation of Light has really changed my life; they showed me I can do anything as long as I believe in myself.
