Metrolite an NLBD site
Information, advice and guidance (IAG) sessions have taken place at Metrolite, an NLBD site based in Wigan, to identify individual learning needs and lead to a Communitas mobile learning centre being used to deliver both basic and intermediate computer skills, with Wigan and Leigh College being approached for training, such as; fork lift truck, PTLLS, NVQ teaching assistance, Level 3 customer service and food and hygiene training.
With the Metrolite site due to close on 16th September 2011, it is important that the workforce are given as much support and training as possible in order for them to have a good chance of finding alternative employment after the closure.
The training offered also covers 1-
Basic ICT training, including the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) will arm the workforce with skills that will enable them to apply for jobs online as well as making them more employable within the job market as a whole.
Metrolite employees engaging with training at the Communitas learning centre
The employer allowed the workforce ample time off with pay to complete the training and were very supportive and Tom Miller, the GM has tried to accommodate any training requests asked for.
Tom Miller, Metrolite’s General Manager, said:
“I’m really impressed by the level of support the company has got from Communitas, Unionlearn and Wigan and Leigh College, with the training and development of its employees and would like to thank everyone who has been involved in these very trying times. The ICT training delivered by Communitas has been a real benefit to the workers who took part in the course and I hope this will eventually lead them to find new employment in the future.”
