Looking for something to do during lockdown, or just interested in learning something new? South Staffordshire College is turning its most popular part time community and leisure courses into online courses. This means if your aged 19+ and looking to improve your career prospects, learn a new skill or hobby you can now do just that from the comfort of your own home.
Jack Fawdrey is a level 3 engineering student at Cannock College and like other students across the country is continuing his studies online.
Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic Jack decided that he wanted to put the skills learned at college into practice to help make a difference for NHS frontline workers. Using a 3D printer at home, Jack started making mask extenders that NHS workers could use in conjunction with their surgical masks to prevent the elastic from rubbing on their ears causing pain and discomfort.
As Cannock Chase Council prepares to make its first Business Support Grant payments after receiving funding from government, it is warning against a number of business scams that have been brought to its attention.
The Government has taken further action to support firms affected by the coronavirus crisis by bolstering business interruption loans for small businesses and announcing a new scheme for larger companies.
