FaCT Committed to Reducing Unemployment in Birmingham
We have recently received the exciting news of approval of the funding, which allows us to deliver no cost training to the unemployment sector in Birmingham. And we couldn’t be happier! Our managing director Tim Drew comments that:
“As an organisation we really care about Birmingham and it’s citizens. We relish the opportunity to offer the unemployed people of Birmingham free training. We’ve ran this course before so we’ve seen firsthand what a difference it makes to peoples lives. This is incredibly rewarding!”
The course, a two week training programme, rewards the successful candidate with a CSCS card in addition to a portfolio of training certificates. With the programme usually costing around £1,250 its beneficial to both employers and the candidates. Candidates will receive the ‘Tickets’ into the industry, and the employers will save the investment of both time and money involved in training a non card holder. By completing this course the participant will be ready to start work in the industry, with no further investment necessary. The training takes place at our HQ in Northfield and all resources are provided, although candidates can bring their own if they prefer. The course is a mix of classroom content and practical elements such as power tool and fencing sessions.
The first group to train on the scheme (pictured below) since it’s renewal finished last week, one of the participants Trevor states that.:
“The course was great, it was challenging but rewarding. I really enjoyed it and it’s changing peoples lives!”
