SOUTH Eastern Regional College (SERC) is recruiting participants for a fully funded intensive programme aimed at reskilling people who have been furloughed, made redundant or have had their employment opportunities affected by Covid-19.
The Skills Intervention Programme, funded by the Department for Economy, offers the opportunity for candidates to gain an OCN Level 4 in Digital Marketing qualification. The 12-week programme, set to commence on Monday, April 12, comprises four weeks virtual learning and eight weeks industry placement and £150 training allowance. It is open to all graduates (with at least a HND in any discipline).
Debbie Scott, Skills Intervention Programme Manager at SERC, said: “Covid-19 has presented many challenges to the whole community and it is vital those employees who have been furloughed or have been made redundant are supported. We also want to support graduates who are looking for employment.”
She added: “Delivered online by SERC, this course focuses on upskilling and reskilling in digital marketing. It is a fantastic opportunity for someone to fast track and pick up a highly sought Level 4 qualification in digital marketing. Employer research has indicated that digital marketing skills are highly desired at this time.”
She concluded: “This fully-funded training will help prepare candidates for the return to their current employment or facilitate a move into new employment – both options are necessary to rebuild the Northern Ireland economy.”
Places are limited.
