Step Up Programme in partnership with the Job Centre and East Lancashire Hospital Trust (ELHT)

Step Up Programme Blackburn College

We are currently hosting our third cohort of students from our partnership with the Job Centre and East Lancashire Hospital Trust (ELHT)

Over the past few weeks the students have been working towards gaining their Level 1 City and Guilds Certificate as they prepare for potential employment with the ELHT.

So far they have undertaken a taster day and a tour of the hospital departments to get a behind the scenes look at where they could be working in the future. As part of the students preparation they will have mock interviews in preparation for their interview with the ELHT.

If the students are successful at interview they will be invited to attend a 3 week placement at the hospital and if this is successful they will be able to take part in the Bank Scheme to choose the shifts they would like to work, which in turn can lead to being offered a permanent contract.
