As part of the ESF High Level Skills programme, Nottingham College are working as part of the High Level Skills consortium to provide bespoke courses for SMEs in the D2N2 (Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire) area.
All the courses running have been designed in partnership with local SME’s and are mapped specifically to the skills needs identified by industry.
The courses will include vocational tasters, literacy and numeracy courses and also employability development. There are a wide range of courses currently on offer such as the Level 3 IMI award in Electric/Hybrid Vehicle Repair and Replacement and the Level 2 Certificate in CAD.
One of the first courses to run was a Dementia Awareness and Communication course, which coincided with Dementia Action/Awareness Week.
This course, delivered on 21 May at the Maid Marian Way campus, was attended by staff from Landermeads Care Home and facilitated by Nottingham College Trainer and Assessor, Natasha Robinson, who is pictured above with some of the students.
The course was a great success and we will be running a a number of these throughout the year as well as other bespoke courses, identified in the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership areas.
