Logic4training is pleased to announce that we have been shortlisted for the H&V News Awards, Training Initiative of the Year!
The accolade comes thanks to our Access to Building Services programme, specifically the work we do with Knowhow, part of the Dixons retail group.
The City & Guilds Access to Building Services Engineering is an accredited fully-funded seven-week training programme for unemployed looking to embark on, or get back into, a career in related trades (plumbing, heating, electrics, air conditioning and renewables).
Candidates are put forward by the Job Centre and come from all walks of life – from charitable organisations, people who have been made redundant and even ex-offenders – the only pre-requisite is basic numeracy and literacy skills and clear levels of enthusiasm, with a willingness to learn. The programme is open to over 19s and there is no upper age limit, providing much needed support for older people who fall outside of the funding available for vocational training.
As part of the course, trainees get to attend work experience and in some cases gain employment or an apprenticeship. Over the last year, Logic4training has worked closely with Knowhow, part of the Dixons retail group, with a number of candidates gaining full-time employment as a result of this relationship. Knowhow currently has six ‘Access’ employees, who have started working alongside its’ team of heating engineers, plumbers and electricians on the road and will hopefully progress to complete full qualifications in their chosen field.
We’re hopeful that this great initiative will see us win at the H&V News Awards, a particularly special year as the awards celebrates its 20th anniversary. We’ll find out whether we’ve been successful on the 24th April. Wish us luck!
