New Year – the perfect time to Get Ahead

Published on: Monday, 05-January-2015

Have you made a new year’s resolution to learn new skills, gain qualifications or find another job?  If yes, then Knowsley Council’s Get Ahead campaign can help!

The ‘Get Ahead’ campaign aims to help people in their daily lives by giving them the skills they need ranging from helping the kids with the homework, managing the household budget, accessing discounts online or landing their next job.

Get Ahead offers free, local courses that are open to Knowsley residents to help them improve their skills, confidence and even achieve qualifications.

Courses range from English, maths, IT, reading as well as courses to help unemployed people into work.  In addition, Knowsley Works have a range of support for residents who want to find work, from developing a CV through to preparing for an interview.

Cllr Dave Lonergan, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet member for Regeneration, Economy & Skills, said “The new year is a perfect time to set a personal goal and with the council’s support, we can help you achieve it.  From English and maths skills, IT, reading or helping you find employment, we can help you gain the skills and qualifications you need to improve your day-to-day life.  I would encourage residents to see what can have to offer and book your place today!”
