The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London held an Awards ceremony in April to recognise the achievement of those learners who have successfully completed the Warehousing and Forklift Truck Operations course. The Award winners were joined by their course tutors as well as College Director for Employability, Jackie Chapman and Centre Manager and owner of the forklift company used to train the students, Richard Lamey.
The newly introduced course trains students in the health and safety aspects of warehouse operations and how to work effectively within that environment. Designed to help those who are out of work by adding to their skills, the course helps to develop employability prospects.
One learner, Steven Keen, found a full-time job in just over a month after completing the course. Steven was recommended to attend the course by his local Job Centre. Steven said: “The course was great, and I feel that without the qualification that I gained from the College and this course, I would not have got back into a full time job as quickly as I did. The tutors were always encouraging and helpful and we had great facilities to learn on.”
Centre Manager, Richard Lamey, said: “The College organised the course well and there was great rapport between the College, the tutors and the students.”
Jackie Chapman said on behalf of the College: “Completing this course can lead to getting an actual job, working in a warehousing company. We know that there are vacancies in this industry at the moment and we are working with Job Centre Plus, local companies and local people to offer training in the skills that are needed for work.”
