During this time of uncertainty and opportunity, Middlesbrough Community Learning is reaching out to local businesses throughout the Tees Valley to offer advice and support.

You can get in touch for information and advice on how they can help you to identify funding and training available for your staff. They can offer tailored resources with access to online training in many areas, and also signposting to partner organisations for additional support.

Their current offer includes:

  • apprenticeships for new and current staff (including furloughed)
  • Functional Skills in Maths, English, and ICT
  • everyday computing, including Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Google Docs
  • ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) and Ways to Work
  • a suite of free online courses, including stress management, first aid, risk assessments, mental health awareness, safeguarding, health and safety, and more
  • Community Learning, for family learning and support into work

Call Kevin Sedgwick on 07825 203214 or Diane O’Connell on 07971 351854 to find out more about how Middlesbrough Community Learning can help you move forward.

Middlesbrough Community Learning also offers support for unemployed residents of all ages via the Routes to Work and Youth Employment Initiative programmes.

Volunteering schemes continue to support the work of Middlesbrough Council and its partners, offering valuable work experience while allowing residents to provide the support that makes us stronger together.
