Training Now! – Training Courses for the Unemployed

Training Now! offers a great range of free training courses to anyone over 19.  The training courses and workshops run from our training centres in Eastbourne and Hailsham in East Sussex.

The Training Now! service was established in 2001 and provides a relaxed and supportive environment for our students to build their confidence, develop their skills and learn new techniques that could help them get back into work.

If you are struggling at the moment with mental health issues, drug/alcohol dependency, are unemployed, living in a deprived area, on benefits or returning to work, we have a course to help you get back on your feet.

We offer accredited courses and a range of workshops from our training centres in Eastbourne and Hailsham.  Courses include topics such as Maths and English.
Workshops include: Woodwork, Knitting and Crafts.

Our apprenticeships are also very popular, so if you are looking to learn a new skill, please contact our friendly team.  If you would like to volunteer at Training Now!, we’d love to hear from you.

We are part of the Now! Charity Group that also offers low cost furniture and household goods via Furniture Now!  We offer extra discounts to those receiving benefits. If you would like to donate or buy second hand and new furniture, white goods and other household items, please get in touch!
