Business Details
Get trained to get a job. Is it really that simple? Well, it could be. Employers are always on the lookout for skilled staff, and if you've got the determination and one of our free vocational qualifications behind you, you'll be well on your way to a regular job. In the video on the left, Claire explains how we can help.
 
We’re all about getting people into work – into roles that suit them, and roles that are of real value to employers. To do this, we give candidates the right training, and help them to gain the qualifications they need to get a rewarding position. Candidates that are properly prepared for the workplace are more likely to succeed in today’s competitive jobs market – even entry-level positions require training and key skills. This is why we are proud to work with colleges and institutes in further education to provide worthwhile, practical qualifications for a range of sectors.

 

Plus, we are not content with simply training people for a job; we get to know our candidates and to understand their strengths and preferences. And by doing this, we are able to match the right candidate with the right company. We’ve helped to put thousands of candidates together with employers and we know that the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach (offered by traditional recruitment agencies) offers few benefits. We build long-term working relationships based on tailoring a specific and unique strategy for every candidate and for every company.

Testimonial #1
I faced a lot of challenges whilst trying to find work, being a long term unemployed person.

Even though I had previous experience in the fields of work I wanted to work in, I still found it really very hard to find a job. I had even done quite a lot for voluntary work, but I was still told by employers that I didn’t have enough experience. I was in limbo.

My cousin was attending a course with Free 2 learn and he recommended that I do a course too. So I decided to register with Free2Learn.

I can honestly say that the support I have received from Free2Learn to help me back into work has been phenomenal.

As part of my training programme with Free 2 Learn, I was also given the opportunity to meet with the Free2Learn employer relations manager. Within a very short period of time, job interviews with employers were arranged for me with had some fantastic contracts in the City.

I started work on the 1st January 2013 and finding employment with the help of Free2Learn has made a big difference to my life. After years of trying to find a job, Free2learn was able to find me one within one month. I feel much better within myself now knowing that I don’t have to sit around waiting for jobseekers allowance.

Having attended and successfully completed the Free2Learn training programme, I gained valuable qualifications as a result and now having a job makes me finally feel good about myself. Knowing that I’m earning my money and being able to afford and do the things I want, without struggling as much as I use too is a great position to be in and where I always wanted to be in life.

If you are serious learning and about finding a job, go to Free 2 Learn. They will help you has much as they helped me and you will not be disappointed. Especially the aftercare that I received from the employment department has made a big difference to my life".
