Lit­er­acy site spels dis­as­ter!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A JOBS web­site set up to help the un­em­ployed im­prove their ba­sic lit­er­acy is lit­tered with SPELL­ING mis­takes!

Sim­ple words like “work­ing”, “ef­fec­tive” and “op­por­tu­ni­ties” are mis­spelt on The Learn­ing Zone web­site.

In­stead of “equal op­por­tu­ni­ties” the site of­fers can­di­dates “equal op­por­tu­nies” and boasts that the “course fouc­ses on the steps you need to take to pre­pare for an in­ter­view”.

On a page ded­i­cated to help­ing job­seek­ers brush up their writ­ing skills and CV it says: “This course uses a va­riet of media and dif­fer­ent re­sourses”.

One page alone con­tains four clangers, in­clud­ing “ workinng” and “ ef­fe­cive”.

Avanta Ltd, who run The Learn­ing Zone web­site, won a mul­ti­mil­lion pound con­tract to de­liver the state’s new Work Pro­gramme in the North East re­gion ear­lier this year.

Re­gional di­rec­tor Kaye Ride­out said she was “dis­ap­pointed” that the mis­takes on the web­site had still not been rec­ti­fied fol­low­ing com­plaints.
