Penshaw View Training - Become Your Best You - Step into Training

Who is this course for?

This course is for local residents who may be facing multiple barriers in being able to prepare for learning, or training. It is particularly beneficial if you are unemployed, over 50, living with health conditions, from an ethnic minority or haven't worked for some time.

What will I learn on the course?

You will develop skills and confidence in the areas that you have identified support is needed, following an individual discussion where you will be offered information, advice and guidance to allow you to plan what you want to achieve in your personal progression. You will have the chance to learn new skills, gain confidence, look at local opportunities and make decisions about your next steps. You will be introduced to sector specific courses to enable you to enter the local labour market once you are ready.

How will I learn?

A range of activities are included, and these can be adapted to suit you. At the end of each session, your tutor will discuss with you what has gone well in the session, what you have gained from it and plan what you want to move on to next. There will not be any tests during the course as the tutor will assess how well you are doing by observing, seeing you participate in group tasks and chat about what knowledge you are gaining.

What next, after the course?

You could move on to gain a certificate with us or 
in your chosen job sector after having met local employers to look at employment opportunities.
