A WHOLE host of training courses are being offered to Doncaster residents to get them back into work.

Mexborough councillor Sue Phillips dropped into the town’s resource centre in Dolcliffe Road to visit adult learners completing a food hygiene Level 2 course.

The visit was aimed at raising awareness of the range of courses available to jobseekers in the area. Many of the courses are free of charge.

These include life skills, computers, first aid in the workplace, food hygiene and beauty.

Coun Phillips said: “Whether you are looking for your first job or returning to work after a break, the resource centre is a great place to come and learn new skills.

“I was delighted to come and meet local people taking steps to find a new career in catering.”

Tracey Leyland-Jepson, manager of the Mexborough Resource Centre, added: “We have a range of courses to make people more employable and get them back on the jobs market.

“In addition to our range of courses we also have CV writing sessions every Friday.”

All courses are run through Wath-based Dearne Valley College and are means-tested, except for life skills which is free.

For more information about the courses and how to get new qualifications and skills, call the centre on 01709 582244.
