CT Skills celebrates a successful relationship with Right Track
CT Skills are celebrating a successful relationship with East Midlands based social enterprise organisation, Right Track as together they have provided hundreds of individuals with the necessary skills and qualifications to gain employment within the community.
Established in 2009, Right Track are a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to help people discover and realise their true potential. The company regularly works with the hardest to help learners who have either been long term unemployed or have issues with housing, drugs/alcohol, literacy and numeracy. Once individuals are enrolled with Right Track, they will often be referred to CT Skills for further guidance and training.
Natalie Walters, In2Work Mentor with Right Track commented;
"I have been working alongside CT Skills since I first joined Right Track a year ago, I use them on every chance I get with my learners to improve their current skills or to gain extra qualifications. If a new person comes to me and expresses their interest in apprenticeships, functional skills or generally up-skilling I will go directly to CT Skills as there is so much for the learners to choose from with them.
The Learner Engagement Officers across all of the CT Skills centres are very helpful; Jamiel from the Nottingham centre is regularly on the end of the phone and comes up with a solution to ensure my young adults achieve what they set out for. Terrance at the Derby centre also goes the extra mile to ensure my young adults achieve their goal, he also provides me with stacks of information regarding course dates, start dates and sector based work academies."
"Building these strong relationships has led us to achieving some fantastic success stories, a most recent one is a lady who wasn't eligible for Right Track's In2Work programme due to her age. However, she was struggling to get anywhere with her local job centre, as she had been asking for an IT course to improve her basic skills and get back into administration work which she had a passion for.
Within 10 minutes of speaking to the woman, I called Jamiel in Nottingham and he immediately had her booked onto a basic IT course with CT Skills, to which she was extremely thankful for as she has now made personal progress to get back in to work."
Jamiel commented on the relationship;
"CT Skills and Right Track communicate extremely well in order to provide the best course information, thus giving their learners the opportunity to decide which course is best suited for them. I'm excited to be working with Right Track to up skill, progress and find long term employment for their clients."
