DISTANCE LEARNING PROVIDER LAUNCHES THE BIG HELP OUT TO AID THOSE IN NEED
Open Study College has unveiled its latest community initiative, The Big Help Out, a career kick start scheme designed to offer direct support to those who have been impacted by the effects of COVID.
The scheme aims to provide the support for those students taking the first step to get back on their feet, and back into work. It offers free CV critiques, a downloadable skills guide packed with tips and advice to aid interview preparation, and career guides to help people find out essential information about certain professions to determine whether it’s the right career path for them.
Open Study College has also partnered with recruitment specialist, SimkissGuy Recruitment, who will offer job hunting support across a range of sectors to further help people back into work.
A full and part-funded scholarship programme has also been introduced to enable those most in need to upskill themselves or give them the skills to change their career and secure future employment opportunities. In addition, the online learning provider will also be running a promotion to provide free tech packs to support those who don’t have the technology to complete online studies or their job search.
The online training provider is also appealing to businesses in the UK to unite with them and get involved in The Big Help Out, and pledge their support where possible; whether they are actively recruiting and have vacancies to fill, or are able to sponsor or part-fund a training scholarship or online course. Companies in a position to help just need to email Director of Marketing, Sadie Cooper on [email protected] to get involved.
