group has recently completed an NOCN Employability Award at Somerset
Skills & Learning in Princess Street and ran an end-of-term
coffee morning in aid of the wildlife charity.
"The course they attended was very successful because the
learners were able to combine the skills learned in the classroom,
which included health and safety, team work, interview techniques
and timekeeping with their vocational training offered by their
job coaches at Huntspill Projects, part of Somerset Work Preparation
Service," spokeswoman Gina Mear told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
"By the end of the 15 week course most of the nine learners
were offered interviews and work placements (some paid) with various
local employers. The group hope to continue their studies at SS&L
by doing a NOCN Certificate from
September," she added.
