Dales Resilience - A programme to help you get into work

Be part of sharing the Yorkshire Dales’ fascinating story.  Learn more about the people, landscape and traditions of this place.

Local arts and heritage charity, Settle Stories, has received funding from the European Social Fund to deliver an engaging 4 week course targeted at those who are currently not working. The course will offer you a structured, fun way to improve and gain new skills to enable your successful path to employment.

This course will give you exclusive access to the archive of one of Yorkshire’s greatest journalists, W.R. Mitchell, who was the editor of the Dalesman for over 20 years. His extraordinary archive is sadly not publicly accessible.

You can help change that. Be part of creating a new touring exhibition of the images from this unique collection and save the precious heritage of the Yorkshire Dales before it is lost forever.

Through this programme you will learn to develop your skills in:

  • Research
  • Using computers and different softwares
  • Interviewing
  • Writing
  • Speaking and listening
  • General Administration

This programme will include 4 day long sessions, one-to-one mentoring and a one to two week placement to give you the chance to put your learning into practice.

At the end of the programme you will receive a certificate of achievement. A reference will be available on request.

Dates:  7th, 14th, 21st, 28th of June

Time: 10am to 4pm.

Venue: The Joinery, Dawsons Court, Market Place, Settle BD24 9ED. Regrettably there is no disabled access at present.
