Myerscough College offers FREE Training Courses for Under 25’s

The College is launching an exciting new training programme for anyone under 25 who is not currently in education or employment, designed to help young people kick-start their careers.

The programme offers a FREE five-week training course at one of three Myerscough College centres across the North-West-Preston, Liverpool and Blackburn.

The initial five-week programme is designed to provide a practical introduction to a range of subjects, from horticulture and landscape gardening to animal management, sport coaching, sport fitness, machinery and motorsport.

Successful completion of the five-week programme allows students to specialise in one subject and enrol on a further five week course in that subject area. The extra five week programme will give recipients the chance to study full-time in one subject area for five weeks, as well as the chance to gain credits, awards and certificates as they progress.

As well as gaining an insight into a particular subject, foundation learning students will receive training in a range of employment skills, including modules on team working, customer services and safe-working practices.

Myerscough College hope to start their first round of FREE courses on Tuesday 8th January, with a rolling programme throughout 2013. Courses will not be limited by traditional educational timetables meaning courses will work on a rolling programme throughout 2013. Applicants must complete an application form and undergo an interview with the College, with successful applicants expected to start their courses as little as two weeks later.

Speaking about the programme, Myerscough College Principal, Ann Turner, said:

“The College is excited about offering a new five-week programme to help young people under 25 kick-start their careers. Our new programme will give people the chance to gain a taste of the diverse range of courses we offer at Myerscough College, whilst gaining core employability skills to benefit them whilst looking for work. I would encourage anyone under 25 who is not currently in employment or education to get in touch and find out more. The courses are free so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain”

Myerscough College is provided with a bursary fund to support learners with an annual household income of less than £30,000. Funds are available to help towards the cost of attending College.
