Maths and English workshop - We could deliver a half day of integrated Maths and English investigation style lessons based on a Functional Skills approach.
Learners will have the opportunity should they then want to improve their Functional Skills session to attend a drop in Maths and English session at Stanley community Football Club on Thursdays from 3-4.30 pm in addition to the work they are completing with yourselves.
Heartstart/First Aid provision - We have a staff member who can visit your premises and deliver a one off basic first aid unit around Health and Safety at Work. This will involve CPR workshop, choking, heart attacks and basic injuries.
This will also give our staff the opportunity to see your programmes first hand to be able to offer the best signposting opportunities and guidance to our participants.
