22-05-18 Zoe Papathanasi 0 comment

We’re running a new free Warehousing & Storage training package for unemployed people in Tameside, which also includes free FLT Licence training!

This three-week course will include two-weeks of classroom-based training at our centre, followed by one week of practical FLT training where learners will gain their Forklift Licence. During the two weeks in the centre, learners will have the opportunity to achieve five industry-specific qualifications.

The Warehousing & Storage course includes Level 1 qualifications in Employment in Warehousing & Storage, Customer Service, Social Media for Employability, Job Search & Digital Skills and IT (Level 1 or Level 2 depending on ability.) Learners will then go on to do a practical week of training where they will gain a free FLT Licence at the end.

The Forklift is one of the most widely used pieces of machinery in the Warehousing sector. It is compulsory that the user has a valid Forklift Licence in order to use one. Making this course the perfect starting point for anyone who’s looking to start a career in the Warehousing industry.

Though this training course is new to Tameside, the same training has been extremely successful in other areas of the country. Lucy Williams, who has previously completed the FLT training, was extremely pleased with the course.

“The course is entertaining, educational and very helpful. Being able to learn these skills has opened up a lot more avenues for jobs in the future,” Lucy explained.

“I’d recommend anybody to do the FLT course, it’s a valuable skill that workplaces are looking for.”

Naidine Palmer, who tutored previous courses, spoke to us about the positive impact these courses has on the learners.

“Learners are leaving feeling they have achieved something they can use to gain employment,” Naidine said.

Our Warehousing & Storage training begins on Monday 4th June and there are limited spaces available. To find out more and book your place on this course email [email protected]
