A regional training specialist is highlighting its free learning on offer during the current downtime as a way of constructively helping people’s job prospects for now and the future.
PHX Training is offering free courses – which comes as part of the government’s Adult Education Budget – as a way of using the time during the current crisis to help themselves. The courses cover functional skills qualifications in English, maths up to GCSE Level 2 , IT, customer service, retail, business admin, work skills, health and social care and warehousing.
Briony Fawcett, managing director of PHX Training, said: “This offer is a constructive way to use the time many people may have on their hands at the moment whether they are currently in employment or out of work. They will be equipping themselves as good prospective employees for now and the longer term.
“Employers should also consider it for those employees who would benefit from this training as a way of upskilling during this time.
“For many parents, it may even be useful to see how these core skills in English and Maths are taught and to pick up some technical points they may have forgotten to then pass as they home school their children. All courses come with accredited qualifications and can done from the comfort of your own home with a dedicated tutor on a one-to-one basis.”
