Andrew has opened the Burton College’s new workshop in Church Street in Uttoxeter following a £41,000 redevelopment.
The service, which is based in the Old Mill, aims to help the unemployed or those at risk of redundancy to return to work through free training opportunities.
Individually tailored to suit a person’s specific needs, the service offers training, encouragement, advice and support in a variety of areas from assisting with the preparation of CVs and searching for local vacancies, to interview techniques and skills training. The service also aims to help local employers to fill their vacancies with individuals who have up-to-date skills that meet the employer needs.
The College hopes that the workshop will also offer an enhanced community curriculum to local residents including a variety of leisure courses and IT provision, if there is enough demand locally.
