It is frequently held up as a model of best practice in employability services with long-term unemployed/economically inactive people and those who experience disadvantage in the labour market.

TIME offer a wealth of expertise in the design and delivery of tailored personal development and employability interventions particularly for individuals deemed furthest from the labour market. We hold extensive knowledge and experience gleaned from multiple European funded similar assignments, which offer unemployed audiences a holistic programme of "custom built" support which is relevant to the context, uses effective methodologies to support learning and transfer of learning and provide individuals with the confidence and skills to actively address labour market and education entry or re-entry options.
