Employability Award Ends with Success

A group of 22 successful students studying their employability award in health and social care at Newham College have received multiple job offers along with a range of other opportunities to progress.

The employability award provides people with essential skills for work and knowledge of the industries that they plan to work in. A quarter of the students on the course have already secured jobs and are due to start work as soon the course ends.

Every student was offered a job interview as part of the course, which is designed to help job seekers find employment. One student, Omar Clarke, has not only gained employment in the health and social care sector but will now progress into higher education.  He will be studyng an HND in health and social care, whilst working in the sector.

The Employability Award opened my mind. The teachers are very good and it’s helped to prepare me for further studies and a job within the Health & Social Care profession.

Another student, Jolanda Strelciunaile did the course, following a 10-year break from the Health & Social Care industry. She had been unemployed because of health issues and wanted to refresh her knowledge of working practices in order to return to her career.

I forgot some of my skills and the course has helped me to regain my confidence and knowledge. The teachers are excellent and I’m more than happy with the course. I’ve also accepted a job offer from London Care Ltd, so I will be able to get back into the field that I was working in.
