CXK is a charity that delivers a range of services to empower young people and adults across the south-east to build the skills and confidence they need to move into education, employment or training. We achieve this by delivering careers information, advice and guidance; specialising in skills development; and providing dedicated support to help people progress into employment, training or learning. Established in 2002, we deliver services across Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Berkshire and Surrey.
We have an excellent reputation for delivering high quality services and programmes that meet the needs of the individuals and communities that we work with; results that we achieve by working in partnership with businesses, voluntary organisations and other agencies across the south-east. As a result we’re able to help individuals to develop their skills, raise their aspirations and reach their full potential.
In the past year alone, we have supported more than 50,000 individuals to build their skills and confidence, and find a work or training opportunity. We achieved this by delivering services including:
- Careers information, advice and guidance services for adults and young people – including the National Careers Service.
- Training and mentoring programmes aimed at helping unemployed young people to find work, education or training opportunities. Through programmes including the Prince’s Trust Team programme, NEET Support Service, Skills Enhancement Programme and Launch Pad, we supported more than 300 young people last year. At least 80% went on to get a job, or education/training opportunity.
- Services for schools including emotional wellbeing services, and career guidance. Last year, we provided support to more than 20,000 students across Kent and Medway.
- Employer services, such as redundancy support, career management and support for the management of an older workforce.
