Employability student Helen Britain
After being made redundant from her job in Customer Service, Helen Britain enrolled on one of the college’s pre-recruitment courses run in conjunction with Home Bargains, which guaranteed her an interview with the retail company on completion.
The 56-year-old said: “I did the course because you are already team building with people who may end up being work colleague so it’s a great ice breaker.
“When you are on a course like this, you not only gain extra knowledge but it also prepares you for interview and you pick up skills in CV writing and composing covering letters.
“There’s a lot of competition for jobs nowadays. This will give me the edge and show employers that you have the commitment they are looking for. It’s been really enjoyable.”
