2017 was a successful year for many with new ventures and new projects.
Work skills project ongoing into 2018
In october 2017, we were successful in gaining an opportunity to offer a course for people currently unemployed to train specifically in Health and Social Care. We designed a course that runs over 5 weeks and trains people to gain The Care Certificate. We offer introductions for the group to local employers within the care industry to then have a guaranteed interview and we pay for a DBS to assist transition into employment seamlessly as possible, and reducing barriers that people may face.
From the project so far we have supported three groups of learners from Bury, Oldham, Middleton/Rochdale through the qualification and have had amazing results and outcomes with specific employment gained for members of the groups.
We are thrilled and so very proud of everyone.
The project continues with opportunities for anyone interested in having a career in care.
If you are interested or know anyone who might be please do not hesitate to contact us and we can organise a place on our current or next cohorts.
