Alliance Learning are one of Bolton’s leading providers of great training courses and apprenticeships. If you’re aged between 16-18, you could benefit from attending two of their courses. If you’re not in education, employment or training (often abbreviated to NEET) or are potentially looking for an apprenticeship in business administration or customer service, or are looking to work in an office environment, then the course may also be for you.
Their IT course lasts for 60 hours over 3 weeks. The course runs between Monday and Thursday 10-4pm. The first week begins on Monday 8th April, then runs for four days before finishing on Thursday 11th April. The second week begins on Monday 15th April and ends on Thursday 18th and the final week starts on Monday 22nd April and finishes on Thursday 25th April.
It will cover the basics of computers, electronic communication and electronic security. It is a fun and worthwhile course.
Anyone who successfully completes the programme will be marketed for potential vacancies through Alliance Learning's Facebook and Twitter pages, and could progress to be selected for any current apprenticeship vacancies, if their skills match the vacancy. Plus they'll get a recognised qualification in BCS Level 1 IT User – ECDL Essentials and then progress to Level 2.
