Courses for job seekers

You can get a qualification at Barking & Dagenham College which will help you get back into work, and you won’t pay a penny for the course. These are short, part-time courses (usually between 2 and 7 weeks) and they start at various times throughout the year. 

We will also help you turn your new skills into a job at the end of your course. 


Look out for us at your local Job Centre Plus
