The Doncaster branch of in2wrk has delivered more free vocational training than anywhere else in 2017, according to the well-known training provider.
Last year almost one in three learners who gained an internationally-recognised English, maths or IT qualification, also received a free vocation-based award as part of the popular Employment Pathways programme.
In addition to the English, maths and IT courses the adult training provider has been offering to people in the community for more than a decade, the Employment Pathway programme allows committed learners to receive industry-specific qualifications which are proven to increase the chances of finding work in their sector of choice.
But company spokesman Jack Johnson, who comes into contact with many of the learners, wasn’t at all surprised that the Doncaster centre came out on top in 2017.
“For a while we’ve been developing a reputation in the local community for delivering adult training that improves people’s chances of finding work,” Jack explained.
“People come to us for various reasons: some come looking to get work in construction, others come with an interest in retail, catering, administrative and care jobs - we’ve been able to help them all with the Employment Pathway programmes we offer.”
So the expanding adult training provider can help even more people improve their all-round career prospects in 2018, later this month they’re moving to a much larger premises at Trafford Court, right next to the train station in the heart of the town centre. And throughout January, in2wrk are offering CV health check sessions to anyone who wants to improve their career prospects and find out about thousands of free adult courses they can offer in 2018.
“We’re very proud of the amount of people we helped upskill and find work last year, but the move to a bigger and better centre next to the train station should tell people that we’re serious when we say that we want to be doing more in 2018,” Jack said.
“That’s why we’re offering the CV health check service. We want to make sure that people are doing what they can to find work and make them aware of all the courses we can offer them this year. We’re going to be doing a lot more than just English, maths and IT!”
