The EPA Trial will help to improve employment prospects of EPA Participants through core elements such as (but not limited to) supported job search skills; writing a resume; cold canvassing; interview and presentation skills; following up job leads; employability skills; registering for job search websites and learning from unsuccessful job applications.
