JOBSEEKERS ENCOURAGED TO GO BACK TO GET AHEAD
Jobseekers across Wolverhampton are being encouraged to go back to get ahead, thanks to a new course being offered by City of Wolverhampton College.
Following the success of its Get Ahead programme for youngsters, the college has created a similar course for those aged 19 and above.
The new course, which runs over either two or four weeks, aims to give jobseekers some of the skills that employers are looking for and help them plan for their futures.
Participants will be able to improve their English, maths and computing skills, work on their CVs and receive interview practice as well as take part in work related training.
Co-ordinator Lorna Prosser said: “Returning to college can be daunting, but this short programme has been aimed specifically at more mature students, to help them improve their career prospects with potential employers.
“Those taking part will not only gain new skills that will look great on their CV, they will also be able to access free advice and guidance, apply for an NUS card and use all the facilities on offer at the college.”
On successful completion of the programme students will be able to move on to other courses, a Prince’s Trust programme, employment, traineeships or apprenticeships.
