Hundreds benefit from partnership with North Lindsey College
Our Employment Support team and North Lindsey College have created over 950 training and employment opportunities since sharing an office.
North Lindsey College’s Adult Skills team moved into our office on Cole Street, Scunthorpe in September 2018, to improve partnership working and support more local people.
In total 951 referrals were made from our Employment Support team to Adult Skills from September 2018 - August 2019. Another success has been working together to up skill and deliver training to more than 100 staff from nine residential homes in the area.
Maryanne Fitzgerald, Next Level Manager at Ongo said: “We’re so proud that by working together and sharing the same values, we’ve been able to achieve so much, and support so many people.
“Some of our clients really struggle with confidence so it’s a huge benefit to introduce them to the team, and not refer them onto a new place with new people. I believe that’s massively impacted our success.
“We can’t wait to continue working with Adult Skills, to benefit even more people.”
Kate McDonald, Associate Director at North Lindsey College, said: “The partnership has gone from strength to strength over the last year, and it’s a pleasure to be part of the team.
“Together we can provide even more opportunities and enhance skills of people in our local community, which is fantastic.
“What the future holds for this partnership is really quite exciting!”
