Skills for Life successes at Poole Borough Council

Accredited WAMITAB Centre, South West Regional Assessment Centre (SWRAC) recently became the first to offer the delivery of Skills for Life qualifications to their extensive portfolio of training and education services. They have now successfully delivered their first Skills for Life course and celebrated their first successes with 8 waste operatives at Poole Council being awarded with their certificates.
Judith Ward, Centre Manager at SWRAC said, “We are very pleased to be able to offer the Skills for Life programme to our clients, which affords added value for learners and provides them with a sound basis to continue further skills development.”
Senga Hamilton Caldwell, Lead Skills for Life Tutor at WAMITAB, said, “We hope more of our accredited centres will offer Skills for Life qualifications in the future as the development of functional literacy and numeracy skills for working adults is still a priority for the new coalition Government.”
