Training experts reach out to hard-to-reach groups

A Cumbrian training specialist has sent out a message to inspire those people who are sometimes difficult to reach across the county – with a number of incentives.

PHX Training, with offices in Carlisle, Barrow, Workington and Cleator Moor, is highlighting the current opportunities to get people back to work under a series of courses in warehousing, retail, business and administration, team leading and security industry training.

As an incentive to complete the four-week courses, PHX Training is offering each successful learner the offer of driving lessons, a bike, a laptop or the recognised security industry badge.

As well as specific industry knowledge, the courses aim to offer students a range of additional skills including customer service, teamwork and IT.

Briony Fawcett, operations director at PHX Training, said: “We want to make sure the opportunities offered by these courses reach some of those who can take most advantage of them.

“These groups of people of all ages are often difficult to reach because they don’t have access to information, may have a health problem or live in communities which are very remote.

“These incentives are unusual but these courses are very relevant and can make a difference to people’s futures. We are providing successful pupils with a laptop, bike or driving lessons to increase their possibilities even further when it comes to applying for jobs.”

Those learners completing the security course will receive the recognised Security Industry Authority (SIA) badge which is a legal requirement that security professionals must posses in order to undertake work in the security sector.

PHX Training creates opportunities for people who are currently unemployed, claiming benefits or on a low income to improve their chances of finding work.

The PHX team of qualified trainers delivers a diverse range of resources including offline, online and face-to-face services at seven training centres in Barrow, Blackpool, Carlisle, Cleator Moor, Morecambe, Preston and Workington.
