At the end of June 2016 a free course aimed at getting unemployed people jobs in the care industry is being held in High Wycombe.
The course, which has been organised by Buckinghamshire County Council and the Department for Work and Pensions, will be held at the Inspire centre in the Eden Shopping Centre, High Wycombe and has a maximum of twenty spaces lasts for four weeks.
Anyone over 19 years of age who is unemployed and claiming out of work benefits in Buckinghamshire can enrol providing they have first attended one of two information days being arranged at the same venue on Wednesday 8th June 2016 and Friday 10th June 2016.
At the end of the course all those who have successfully completing the training are guaranteed a real job interview from one of three care firms who will be supporting the sessions.
Transport and childcare costs will be paid to allow people to attend.
Martin Phillips, Cabinet Member for Community Engagement and Public Health at the County Council, said: ‘We held a couple of similar health and social care courses last year and were delighted that 16 of the 22 who attended the training managed to find jobs. We hope to have an even better strike rate this year because we have three well-known care employers who have agreed to support the training and also carry out interviews.
I would urge anyone unemployed who is interested in a career in care to look into this and attend one of the training days. It’s a great opportunity.‘
