Lincoln-based social enterprise, The EBP, have free places for 15 Lincolnshire mums to take part in an online training course to help them get back to work or into further education.
Whether participants are looking to go back to work after maternity leave or have taken time out to concentrate on being a mum, the course, called ‘You’ve Got This’ will help develop essential skills and knowledge in a supportive online programme to help them get back into work or continue with their education.
The course is free for participants to take part in and is delivered online by The EBP’s tutors so it can fit around childcare needs and other commitments. You’ve Got This also is AIM accredited, meaning that all participants can receive a nationally recognised qualification on completion of the course.
We asked one participant who is already taking part in the programme why they had decided to get involved. They said “…I didn’t get the best grades at school which I’ve always regretted and feel like this is a great second chance to get some qualifications and hopefully get into work or further education.”
The You’ve Got This course is made up of 3 key areas
- An accredited course with qualifications at both Level 1 & 2. This includes modules on a wide range of industry sectors including animal care, business, administration & customer service, catering & hospitality, childcare, construction & building, creative design, hair & beauty, and horticulture. Participants can choose the modules based on their interests.
- Certificated modules in a variety of life skills areas, including healthy eating, exercise & wellbeing, finance management, resilience and managing your time as a parent.
- Work placements or virtual work placements based on the interests and aspirations of the participant.
Because of the flexible nature of the course, the duration and hours of study will depend on the module choices of each learner, however, all courses can be delivered flexibly to make sure that all learners can get the most out of their course whilst being supported by The EBP’s highly-trained tutors.
