Flower Estate Family Action -
IT For Work Project
Estate Family Action applied for funding to the Firth Park Community First
panel to fund practical sessions for those looking for employment and needing
to improve their computer skills.
Our past experience of delivering various
accredited/unaccredited IT training covering various Microsoft Office
programmes had shown that while learners get an overview of each programme we
felt that there was a gap of how these programmes would be practically used in
the world of work. Learners completed practical task based on office/business
scenario’s. We also provided dedicated drop in sessions for those searching for
employment online. Learners
had support in creating a CV.
Learners also used Desk Top Publishing to create
business publicity if they were to start their own business.
St Leonards Community Hall
St Leonards needed to replace their oven in the kitchen of their community hall in order to allow hot food to be prepared for the groups using the space including the 'lunch club'. The grant enabled them to do this and so keep this vital community resource in operation. Doesn't it look shiny.
