Free Employability and IT Training

Workwise are pleased to announce that they are able to offer free courses and qualifications in Employability and IT, to those who were previously unable to access their services.

They are now offering a series of employability workshops, delivered over 4 days, that will result in every participant achieving a City and Guilds nationally recognised qualification.

Alongside that, the learners* can also take part in a 12 week IT course, that will give them an ITQ Award.  This will demonstrate their effective use of IT systems and software to potential employers, and again is nationally recognised.

Workwise also believe that by achieving qualifications and learning IT, the learner will experience a boost in self esteem and confidence.  Each learner will have the opportunity for a 1-2-1 with a skilled advisor, to discuss any personal barriers or challenges they have faced when it comes to finding employment.

The courses are open to:

  • job seekers
  • those with mild mental health illnesses (under the care of a GP)
  • anyone who feels they could do with refreshing those all important skills needed for finding work

*all learners must be 18+

For more information please call Suzanne Mildinhall on 01284 755261.
