Weston programme gets people into work
A NEW Weston-based company which helps young adults train in social care is looking to get more people signed up to the programme.
Pursuit Training, is currently helping people from the age of 16, in the Weston and surrounding areas, train to work in the adult health and social care industry with fantastic results.
With the first batch of care academy students about to complete their 12 month programme, a large proportion of them have secured jobs or will be going into full-time employment as a result of the programme, which is government funded.
Managing director, Steve Horler, said: “We have also had a large number of adults attend the 19+ academy in order to re-train and enter the care sector, who have also found full-time work as a result.”
A number of care providers have given the students the opportunity to gain real-life experience of the care industry and many have employed students after the programme.
