Free Training and Skills Courses

Our Customer Excellence Leader, Christina, reached out to Nottingham City Homes to see if they could help our tenants by allowing access to their Tenant Academy and Employability Skills.

Working in partnership, we’re now able to offer you the opportunity to go on free courses and work with the Employability team at Nottingham City Homes to work on CV building or interview skills.

Examples of courses available include:

·       Emergency First Aid sessions. This is classroom-based and accredited.

·       Food Safety Level 2 training. This is an accredited, flexible session which you can access online when you wish and takes around 2 hours to complete.

·       Building a great CV

·       Interview Skills 

·       Women in Construction Taster Day. (Men are welcome to attend also).

If you’d like to sign up for any of these courses or see what else is currently available, follow this link and register. Remember all these courses are free of charge.

If you’d like to sign up to receive support getting back into work, you can sign up here to hear from the Employability team.

The Finance and Management Business School, in partnership with Vision West Nottinghamshire College, are running free, short vocational courses (online at present due to Covid, with the exception of certain elements of the Security course, Forklift training and the CSCS test) for unemployed people and people earning less than £17,000 a year.

Their remote courses for the East Midlands/ South Yorkshire are funded by Vision West Nottinghamshire College, and open to anyone in receipt of benefits or a low income with no hidden costs, and they will fund learners’ CSCS cards, SIA badges and Forklift training as well as all other training and qualifications such as Accountancy exams.

All courses start every Monday on a rolling basis, and learners will need access to a PC/Laptop and an internet connection.
