Courses: Renewable Energy Skills
Kevin had been out of work for 18 months when he heard about Group Horizon’s courses through the job centre. At first Kevin was reluctant to find out more as he had lost his confidence since becoming unemployed but the Group Horizon team made him feel relaxed and welcome when he attending an advice session. Group Horizon took time to really listen to Kevin’s needs and ambitions and matched him with a course accordingly. Kevin started Renewable Energy Skills in November 2013 and spent 10 days training with Group Horizon at their base within North Herts College in Stevenage. Kevin successfully completed the programme and also achieved his CSCS card and PASMA certificate.
“This course helped me to get back into a routine, learn teamwork and communicate better” says Kevin. Since completing the Renewable Energy Skills course Kevin has gone on to successfully find work with a Installations company, Domestic and General Insulation Ltd, based in Worcester, covering the Sandy, Bedfordshire area for the company.
