A new course that will help residents of Woodhouse Close and the surrounding villages to boost their English and maths skills has been announced.

The 10-week course, organised by believe housing, has been designed to boost employment skills for everyone taking part, as well as making everyday life easier.

The training will take place at Auckland Youth and Community Centre in Woodhouse Close from 9am to 4.30pm and is free to anyone who is a believe housing customer looking for work.

Despite being delivered to Level 2 standard, no previous experience is necessary and teaching is carried out by highly-qualified tutors in small groups and at a learners’ own speed.

“The course is free and is designed for people who might not be particularly confident in these areas. And the skills learned will genuinely make a huge impact on people’s lives.”

This course is the latest in a series of training and educational opportunities being offered by believe housing, one of the region’s largest providers of affordable housing.
