Work Related / Vocational Courses
There are some areas of work that require a work related qualification or licence in order for employees to conduct their role safely and legally. For example, if you would like to work on a construction site, then you will legally need a CSCS card. The same applies for other areas such as Taxi Licence, Plant Licence, and Security etc.
We are able to offer work related training to all participants in order for them to upskill and improve their CVs so they are able to apply for jobs where a specific and work related qualification is required.
Some of our participants have received Communities for Work Plus and Communities for Work support in order to complete longer courses which are often required for certain sectors of work. Examples include:
- GCSE English and Maths
- Level 2 Award in Teaching Assistant
- ECDL (or other relevant and accredited I.T. qualifications)
Communities for Work Plus and Communities for Work also supports participants with their emotional wellbeing and self-development. We know that not all participants are ready to go straight into work and may also need some personal support before embarking on more formal training.
