" For over 10 years I have been a patron of DBBC. I have visited the studios and seen for myself the incredible' work done there with the diverse range of students.
"I always take great pleasure in presenting the awards, alongside the Mayor and Mayoress of Bolton, at the Gala Presentation Night arranged by DBBC each year. "
DBBC trains a wide spectrum of students, including disengaged teenagers, unemployed, disaffected or disabled students, from all ethnic groups, with the aims of getting them into employment or back into education. Our courses raise confidence and self-esteem, increase vocabulary and work ethics (i.e. time-keeping, personal presentation, social skills, appreciation of other people's needs, co-operation) as well as giving new transferable skills. Our courses are accredited by Ascentis.
DBBC does not receive funding from educational sources or council funding. Our team raises funding through grant foundations and our own fund raising activities.
In ten years we have trained over 1000 students, many of who have gone on to further education or into employment. It costs £500 to train a student. This covers around six months of training, although many may take longer before we are happy that they are ready to move on.
Would YOU be willing to sponsor a student?
If you do you will have the knowledge that you are giving someone the confidence and skills to become employed. You will be able to follow the students' progress and later see them presented with their Ascentis certificate, by Julie, at our next prestigious Gala Presentation Night.
