As an organisation that supports economic regeneration, we are very keen to help parents and carers access training in order to improve their opportunity of gaining employment.
Our multi-purpose rooms are used for adult learning and we have offered a variety of training courses and programmes over the years. Training projects are usually designed to meet local need and are aimed at families who will benefit from accessing training within their community and from on-site childcare.
Training courses are timed to fit in with family commitments and school times. We are currently offering training for childcare workers and teaching assistants. Other planned courses for the coming year include ESOL courses for women and paediatric first aid. We also work in partnership with colleges and other training institutions to offer subsidised child care to their students.
