CHECK OUT THE VIDEO ON THIS PROJECT:
FLYING SPARKS is a project that’s aim is to support people from in and around Newcastle to make positive steps towards employment, whilst taking part in a 16 week long, Level 2 Welding and Fabrication course at Newcastle College’s Energy Academy.
WHERE ARE WE NOW?
We now have 12 participants who have completed their Level 2 MIG Welding qualification! The team is now working to match these participants to entry level welding jobs, apprenticeships and work experiences. We are currently working with local businesses to fill their vacancies, however we do still have a few people left to place. With this in mind, if you are looking to employ an entry level welder, please contact us using the details below.
HOW DOES THIS BENEFIT YOUR BUSINESS?
As we are all aware, the standard interview style recruitment process does not always source the correct person for the job. Leading to high staff turnover and a lack of motivation in teams, due to a lack of passion. Each of these participants is involved because they want to change their current situation and they are interested in the sector. This is a unique opportunity to see a future employee in a work environment, connect with them, build rapport and loyalty and allows you to tailor their research and learning to your organisation before they begin working with your company.
In addition, you will be giving someone the opportunity to enhance their life, support themselves and grow as a person.
Our participants are between 23-56 years old and come from a diverse range of backgrounds. They are driven not only by their passion for welding, but also by the opportunity to change their current career/life path. Each and every participants is taking part in FLYING SPARKS because they choose to be here. No one has been forced to take part in the course. With this in mind, when there has been struggles and barriers to overcome in order complete the course, it has been their will power and determination that has pushed them through!
Every single participant is ready and raring to get into work and become an asset to their employer and team. So come and get em’!
