Train To Change (UK) Ltd are proud to work with Neston Town Council and successfully obtain their Assist Grant to train local Neston residents in obtaining accredited fork lift truck training and help them into full time work with local employers. To date Train To Change has trained 7 learners with 5 of them passing the FLT training and into work.
Train To Change Director of Commercial Services, Mike Jones commented “we have managed to get several long term unemployed Neston residents into work and are looking forward to building on this success in future. We have excellent links with over 180 local employers and this has helped us place the learners when they have passed their training with us. All the learners have been male so far from Neston but we are hoping to recruit female learners in future as it is a job that both sexes can prosper in”.
Cllr Loch said “this is very suitable work for women – it does not require any strength, it is well-paid and can offer flexible working hours.
Learner Barry Birch (see picture) commented “I can recommend the training given to me by Train To Change and look forward to using the qualification to obtain employment very soon. I have been offered work starting in May but expect to get a job before then. I am grateful to Neston Town Council for funding this training as it will change my life.”
