Hello my name is Tahmina Choudhury, I am the Employment Development Officer for Open Door CVCHA I am based at the Sanctuary which is the local community building in Castle Vale and have been working since December 2008.
The aim of my role is to advise, support and guide clients on a range of employment and training issues to enable and empower individuals to develop and/or improve skills and raise aspirations.
The Open Door Project offers a program of support to clients, assessing support needs to ensure that the appropriate services are provided to remove barriers to employment and training and also to ensure that clients are referred to other appropriate service providers.
Delivering a confidential service that responds to individuals’ financial, health, personal, cultural, and emotional needs is very much part of the Open Door Project
I have been working in partnership with a number of agencies to develop and implement a programme which addresses priorities of the clients and to establish a referral pathway into and out of the service.
