Welcome to Moving On Tyne & Wear

Thank you for expressing an interest to join our programme – we’re looking forward to working with you and helping you on your employment journey.

Whilst we work through the sign-up paperwork*, please use this dedicated, private space on our website to learn a bit more about us!

We’re keen to get started, and we have a couple of questionnaires we would appreciate you filling in. They’ll help us understand a bit more about what you’re hoping to get from the programme, how we can help and what things you’re interested in.  The information will be shared with your local team to help ensure the programme is the right fit for you and shape how your Navigator can support you once you start.  Take your time and come back to it at a later date if need be!  In the meantime, have a read through some of our Real Life Stories which will give you an insight into the successes we’ve achieved and they might just give you the inspiration you need.

To keep up to date with all things MOTW, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.  Search for @MovingOnTW and you’ll see daily posts about our services, news and events.

*As a reminder, in order to be eligible for our programme we need to provide evidence for funding, this includes a Birth Certificate or Passport and evidence that you are currently unemployed (such as a Universal Credit statement or similar document).  Please get in touch with us if you’re struggling to find these documents.

  • I'm over the moon and I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have towards Moving On Tyne & Wear. You all have gone above and beyond for me and I'll never forget it and I'll never let you folks down. Thank you so much. I feel honoured to have such great people in my corner who believe in me.

  • I now have a goal in mind of what I want to do, I am pursuing that goal and I feel motivated to do it.

  • I have just passed my first Prince2 exam and I can't thank Moving On Tyne and Wear enough for giving me this opportunity! Without them none of this would be possible!

  • The support you have provided highlights your caring nature and concerns towards my wellbeing, you have always prioritised my health conditions and recognised how much searching for employment means to me, trying your utmost effort to secure my achievements.

  • Thanks to MOTW I'm currently on my way to my dream job, something I always considered to be a long term goal. I can't recommend their support enough!
