Ethical Education Enterprise CIC are grateful and glad to announce a fabulous opportunity for residents of Greater Manchester.
After making an application to the WEA working with the Education Skills Funding Agency, we have been successful in receiving funding from the European Social Fund to carry out our next exciting venture, Plan Your Pathway.
Our company is a Mossley based organisation. We have successfully delivered many training courses and accredited qualifications to our learners throughout the Greater Manchester area for the last six years via community centres, charities, private businesses and to individual students.
We are a Community Interest Company, so we operate Not for Profit and for the good of our community.

Our course aims to support Greater Manchester during these difficult times to reach members of our community who are unemployed or at risk of redundancy due to the unstable job market during the Global Covid-19 Pandemic.
Our locations for the exams will be in Mossley (Tameside) and Harpurhey. The majority of the courses will be taught online to ensure the safety of our staff and learners. Our venues for exams have been stringently selected for their locality, Covid specific health and safety precautions and full risk assessments.
The course is designed to arm participants with the skills needed to successfully apply for new employment, with the confidence and motivation to help them find meaningful and gainful employment.
We will offer support in this endeavour through education and careers advice, then provide our learners with the tools to achieve success.
To remove social and economic barriers to success, all our participants will receive transport costs for exam modules, and on successful completion of the course, a FREE Amazon Kindle Fire with links to aid them with job searches.
This bespoke course has been designed to give participants entering the workplace gain confidence, skills and knowledge.
This will include a welcome and an introduction to tutors and support staff for all activities, an outline of the course objectives and the expectations of our awarding bodies and funders. We will also explain all learning modules and give details of the qualifications to be taken in the final stages of the programme.
