During their partnership with William Booth House Community Linx have worked extremely close with residents and staff, offering meaningful learning experiences and supporting individuals progression.
Community Linx have completed learner surveys and have held consultation sessions identifying what residents would like to access. This highlighted a vast amount of interest for Maths, English, ICT and Employability skills as key development areas.
Community Linx set out to secure funding to meet the needs of the residents and were very pleased to secure a contract with YH Training Services to deliver City and Guilds Functional Skills qualifications.
Delivery of these qualifications is scheduled to take place throughout the year with waiting lists already in place.
Community Linx have enjoyed supporting over one hundred residents residing at William Booth House during 2013, some accessing multiple sessions and programmes covering a wide range including:
- Employability Training Packages
- Independent Living Skills Training Packages
- Restorative Practice Training
- Personal Development Training Packages
Community Linx have also supported residents with move-on information and housing initiatives, supported applications for grants and development awards, and coached and supported some residents into Further Education and volunteering.
Working creatively Community Linx have designed engaging training programmes to meet the needs of residents, to inspire hope, self worth and positive change.
