Col­lege course helps stu­dents get dream jobs

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

A COURSE set up to help un­em­ployed peo­ple into the world of em­ploy­ment has been hailed a huge suc­cess.

The course is run by Mac­cles­field Col­lege in con­junc­tion with Job Cen­tre Plus.

Sev­en­teen stu­dents have suc­cess­fully com­pleted the Level 1 Award in In­tro­duc­tion to Health, So­cial Care and Chil­dren and Young Peo­ple Set­tings, which is cer­ti­fied by City and Guilds.

The course was also sup­ported by em­ploy­ers, who in­ter­viewed the stu­dents with the po­ten­tial for per­ma­nent jobs. Firms such as Ablewell Care, Sunrise Se­nior Liv­ing ,My Life Liv­ing As­sis­tance, David Lewis Cen­tre and the Manor Care Home met with the stu­dents at a spe­cial open day and a num­ber of stu­dents were em­ployed as a re­sult of the in­ter­view process.

Elaine Verdon, who de­liv­ered the course with fel­low lec­turer Steve Axon, said: “We are de­lighted with another suc­cess­ful course, re­sult­ing in job of­fers for many of the learn­ers.”

The course is de­signed for un­em­ployed peo­ple who are cur­rently look­ing for work in the health and so­cial care, early years or young peo­ple sec­tors. It will give them knowl­edge and help to de­velop some of the skills that are needed to en­able them to work in these ar­eas.
