Andrew Collinge Training complete apprentice Basic Skills Assessments – Sept 15

ICT Suite AC4 (2)

Andrew Collinge Training completed the basic skills assessments of 105 apprentice hairdressers at Gateway this week.

Over 3 and a half days, the trainees from salons all over Merseyside and Cheshire came to Gateway to use our ICT suite and perform the online basic skills assessments.

They used our ICT workstations and robust broadband connection to put up to 15 trainees at a time through the BKSB on-line portal, to give them a benchmark of their basic skills levels at the start of their traineeship. They’ll continue to receive the relevant individual support to improve areas of their basic skills whilst continuing with their on-the-job practical learning.

We’re so glad to welcome them back to Gateway after a short absence and hope to be able to book next years’ cohorts in for September 2016 very soon.

We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Liverpool City Council to Gateway this week for the first couse of more than 50 which have been organised to take place between September 2015 and March 2016. Gateway was successful in fighting off competition to win a tender to provide conference and training facilities for up to 100 delegates from all departments following Liverpool City Council downsizing some of their in-house facilities following recent premises re-organisation.

The first course on Friday 18th September is entitled “Report Writing For Social Workers” and we look forward to welcoming 20 delegates to Gateway for that course.

We also welcome for the first time this Autumn British Medical Association who have 2 courses booked in OCtober and also The House of Commons with 2 outreach programmes also in October.

Usual suspects AQUA, Mencap training, LMH/HMS, HIT training, The Knowledge Academy, Health and Safety Group among many other one-off programmes are also expected back throughout Autumn and Winter.
