Innovative Alliance

Carl Mason was searching for a job with the help of his local Job Centre Plus (JCP), when he was made aware of the fully-funded training courses at Adult Education training provider, Innovative Alliance (@IATraining_Liv).

Carl immediately decided to take advantage of the fully-funded courses available to him. After speaking with the team at IA, Carl decided the Warehousing and Storage course was the best fit for him.

The course covers the skills and knowledge needed to work in the Warehousing industry safely, it is suitable for people looking to get into the industry, or who have previous knowledge of the sector.

In October 2020, Carl successfully completed the Warehousing and Storage course at IA and could not praise the team enough for improving his confidence, he said;

‘’The course made me feel more confident, the classroom environment meant we were able to join in with the discussions, which was helpful.’’

‘’Our trainer, Greg, made me feel very welcome throughout the course and I would definitely recommend this course to anyone considering it.’’

After completing the course, the team at IA were able to signpost Carl for a job opportunity within the sector, Carl was successful at the interview and managed to secure the role. He credits the course for enabling him to have the confidence and knowledge to interview for the job.

He said;

‘’The course gave me the confidence and knowledge to attend the interview, which resulted in me securing the role.’’

The free Warehousing and Storage course is available across the Liverpool City Region and surrounding areas and is open to anyone currently in unemployment.

Over the past two months the Warehousing and Storage course has helped 31 learners secure roles in the sector.

The adult education provider recently teamed up with a national retailer to provide a SWAP (Sector Based Work Academy Programme) for their Warehousing course. The SWAP allows learners to get the skills and knowledge to work within the sector with the view of securing a role at the retailer upon completion of the course. The courses produced a 100% success rate with all learners being offered employment.

Innovative Alliance specialise in providing adult education training to people in unemployment or who are on a low wage. Their team of highly trained tutors are on hand to support learners throughout the process and provide them with the advice and guidance they need to help kick start their careers.
