Learners gain grade

UNEMPLOYED learners brushing up on their job-seeking skills are one step closer to employment after receiving their first training grade.

The learners, who have been attending Wansbeck CVS, were recently presented with their National Open College Network Level 1 Award in Employability.

The programme is designed to help people develop their skills in using the internet to find suitable jobs, completing forms, practising for interviews, being able to work in a team, and health and safety.
