Building On Solid Foundations With Jobcentre Plus
(Posted on 08/02/17)
Throughout 2016, kickstart2employment forged an excellent working relationship with Liverpool Jobcentre Plus by delivering a number of highly successful sector-based work academies. The organisations have continued to work collaboratively into 2017 and have already facilitated the delivery of five sector-based work academies for over 100 learners!
Originally focusing on the construction sector, kickstart2employment quickly realised similar courses could be delivered for people seeking to advance into positions in the care sector. This expansion in service offering has seen a rise in the number of women acquiring new skills, which has been particularly pleasing to Liverpool Jobcentre Plus.
k2e delivered a two-week NOCN Level 1 Certificate in Care, advancing the employment, training and personal skills of eight female participants. All learners achieved a 100% pass rate and are now actively seeking employment in care work.
Since 9th January, a number of sector-based work academies in construction have been running on a weekly basis. Seventy six learners developed and advanced personal and employment skills, with all successfully achieving a CACHE Level 1 Award. Twenty learners completed a two week NOCN course, each gaining a Level 1 Certificate.
With plenty more programmes planned throughout 2017, this year looks set to strengthen workplace opportunities for job seekers living and working in Merseyside.
