We have recently taken the next step in developing our company and become a member of CPD. We are currently writing some new courses that will be accredited with the CPD and are working hard to ensure that these courses are to the same high standards as all of the others we deliver.
Our CEO has also recently undertaken higher level Food Safety and Safeguarding qualifications so Ethical Education Enterprise CIC can begin to deliver Level 3 in Food Safety and Safeguarding.
All of our new courses will be available in January 2021, so watch this space for exciting new opportunities.
We are excited to announce a new opportunity for the 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.
This 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.
This course will consist of a series of online modules aimed to improve your knowledge surrounding areas such as different job sectors, job searching and interviews. You will also be able to choose two accredited qualifications to complete to help you gain work relevant qualifications and improve your CV. On completion of the course learners will receive a FREE Amazon Kindle Fire to aid with their job search.
During the past few months, we, like many of you, have been in a very fluid environment with the nature of our business and life changing daily.
First and foremost, we are a Community Interest Company, a not for profit organisation. As such, we believe we must continue to serve our community in any way we can during the Coronavirus outbreak.
During the period of time where schools sadly had to close, we have been working with primary and secondary school students using online resources and teaching. This has helped us to carry on with tuition that children at this time have needed to keep up to date with school work and at the same time ensure safety for our students and our staff.
At this time, we will slowly be moving back to some face-to-face teaching where it is safe. We are keeping our online teaching resources for anyone that would prefer this method of tuition at this time. We will be keeping up to date with recent news and changes to guidelines so this may change in the future, but we will always act with our staff and student's health in our best interest.
Alicia has recently graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in Psychology, a subject she has been studying since 2013 and is very enthusiastic about. Alicia has a strong interest in research and making sure all the work Ethical Education produces is up to date with the latest information. Alicia has been working to help develop Ethical Education Enterprise throughout her education and is continuing her professional and personal development by working towards a Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship (Level 6).
Since joining the company, Alicia has definitely hit the floor running. She has made a great impression on the quality of work, and has took a leading role in the writing of materials for courses delivered by Ethical Education, as well as beginning her teaching experience with some of our wonderful learners.
In the latter part of 2019 we delivered an astonishing 96 qualifications to Helping Hands mobile worker team, these include Health and Safety in the Workplace, Dementia Awareness, Manual Handling, Equality and Diversity, Safeguarding Adults, COSHH and First Aid 1 and 3 day courses, to name a few.
Well done to all the Team, embracing some new and some refreshed learning. It was an intensive program, but with everyone's hard work, we achieved a 100% pass rate.
Some comments from our learners -
"Very good, enjoyed the course, thanks"
"I have gained a better understanding of the subject, thanks"
"really enjoyable day"
In addition to this and with the support of CEO Joan Fielder, we were able to offer free places to the staff and volunteers of the Training Hub at Princes Park, Irlam, an organisation that provides work and experience for adults with learning difficulties.
