NASS Skills Course
We have been running courses for the past 4 years and have had great successes. It is incredibly rewarding seeing our members grow and develop. We have seen people’s lives and attitudes change through doing the courses on offer and would encourage as many as you as possible to sign up. One of the biggest benefits we continuously see is the confidence these courses give people, often students are concerned or worried about retraining, refreshing their skills or anxious that they went to school a long time ago. Please be assured that the courses are not threatening at all! They are small in class size and there is plenty of individual attention and the tutors do their best to ensure everyone feels comfortable and is able to learn in a way that suits them. We all want each person to be successful so will help you as much as possible to get great results.
The courses are funded through Union Learn and the emphasis is on improving English and Maths skills across the country. These are the most necessary skills needed for anyone to look at job opportunists outside of the racing industry and also offer openings within the industry but away from the yard.
The majority of courses have been held in Newmarket and we would love to branch out to a greater geographical area but can only do this if there is sufficient demand, so please get in contact with us as the more people we get the quicker we can set up a course in your area.
Our ESOL (English Speaking for Other Languages) courses have been tremendously popular and are oversubscribed every time we hold them. These courses are aimed at people working in racing who do not have English as their first language.
