About Me

  1. Hi, I have been claiming JSA for 9 months. I really want to do a course called IRATA which is rope access. I even have a guy who will give me a job if I get the certificate but it costs £800. My JobCentre adviser said he would apply for funds for me. He didn't tell me who he was applying to. Then when they said no, he tried another fund. He will never tell me what these funds are and so I can't even appeal or write a letter to help my case! When he submitted my last try, he didn't even send all my paperwork together and admitted he'd forgotten to send the letter that promised me a job after the course. Weeks later he showed me an email saying "application unsuccessful" and no other details. When I asked for more he said he had deleted the email. I have a friend who got a course and transport paid but I am being told they will pay nothing for me. I just want a chance to do the course and get a career and my life back. Shouldnt they be rewarding my wanting to get off benefits rather than paying me the JSA! This has gone on for months I could be employed by now. They even said why don;t I just get a loan...as if I have no money for repayments and noone lends to the unemployed Does anyone know of any funds/grants or JobCentre thing I should be asking my adviser for, or if I can appeal against this sort of thing? Or even some clue as to whether the JobCentre has any discretionary funds I could beg for? Thanks for any help!
