Lewisham Homes residents and staff were celebrating this week as they were awarded NCFE Level 2 qualifications from courses delivered by Dynamic Client Solutions (DCS) in partnership with Lewisham Homes and Buckinghamshire College.
At a presentation in the Old Town Hall, Catford, local residents received their certificates for a wide range of courses including data protection, business administration, event planning and much more.
A team of Lewisham Homes caretakers had something to celebrate too, as they picked up qualifications in functional English skills. John Lowe, one of the caretakers to complete this course, sang its praises: ‘It was uplifting,’ he said. ‘We learnt so many useful and important things. Improving my spelling helped with pronouncing words, too.’
All in all, 49 learners achieved 101 qualifications, with some residents completing five or six courses each. After the certificates had been presented by course leader Carlene Fenton, the newly qualified students had an immediate opportunity to enhance their employment options, through networking with employment support services such as St Giles’ Routeways Programme, the National Careers Service and Lewisham Construction Hub.
We are running courses with DCS once more in the coming months. To find out more information and apply, click here.
