Our Next Step project partnered up with Great Places for ‘Get Online’ week.
Residents at Sarah Lodge in Bolton (an Independence and Wellbeing scheme for young parents) were able to take advantage of all the FREE online courses the Next Step project offers.
Because all the courses are online, the residents were able to complete them at their own pace, while also improving their IT skills. They completed Certified courses such as: Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding, Food Hygiene and Retail Customer Service, all which will look great on their CV!
Nicolette, the Employment and Skills Manager from Great Places, said:
“The partnership work to get this up and running smoothly for residents was amazing and I can’t thank Bradley from Northmoor and Farida from Sarah Lodge enough for supporting and encouraging the learners. The residents have really embraced this opportunity with one of them completing eight courses in four weeks – awesome!”
Mary-Ann, who won a prize for being the first resident to complete a course, said:
“It’s great to refresh my learning and it’s free! I did my two modules bit by bit each evening in the flat when the kids were in bed. I am now keen to look at options to get back into work.”
