Training to benefit communities and job prospects!

Training to benefit communities and job prospects!

The Neighbourhood Engagement Team organised and ran two accredited training courses for tenants at our head office in Ashton-under-Lyne.

24 residents completed the First Aid at Work and Food Hygiene Level 2 courses, designed to help individuals improve their knowledge and expand their skill base.

Some of the participants were community volunteers; others were job seekers looking to improve their employment prospects. The courses enabled attendees to gain recognised qualifications – in line with the Employment and Skills commitments of the Neighbourhood Plans.

Jean a volunteer at the Tameside Women’s and Families Centre, that passed the Food Hygiene Level 2 commented, ‘The training delivered was informative and fun. Everyone really enjoyed the experience and I will be back again in September for First Aid Training.’
