TDN Students on the fast-track to success

Working in conjunction with Alfreton Jobcentre Plus, The Derbyshire Network has delivered an intensive two-week Cleaning and Hygiene Safety Course for ten JCP clients looking to gain new qualifications that will enhance their chances of finding employment.

Some members of the group already had a wealth of experience, but no formal qualifications to reflect this to any potential employers.

Responding to local demand for both this type of training and demand from local employers for candidates with relevant skills, we developed a course that could be delivered in a two-week timescale and involved no less than four different qualifications.

Attending our Ripley centre 5 days a week for the two-week duration of the course, the students worked through:

  • Cleaning principles
  • Control of substances hazardous to Health (COSHH)
  • Health and safety Level 2
  • Food Safety Level 2.

We are delighted to say that all learners have achieved their certificates, with fantastic feedback on the course such as, “I feel that by coming on the course it has re-awakened me and inspired me to continue with education.”

Some of our successful learners are already back in employment, with another three looking in to start their own businesses.
