Are you considering a Community Work training programme? We have many options available to you, such as short courses, bespoke programmes and NVQ’s. View our section on Bespoke Courses, or call us for more information and our dedicated team can help you decide what courses are best suited to your needs or we can write a specialised programme for you.
For some of these learners it may be the first taste of training or education that they have undertaken in their adult life, therefore the skills obtained by attending these courses (i.e. confidence, behaviours and attitudes that employers are looking for) set them up to progress further in their chosen path.
