BACK TO WORK CELEBRATIONS!
Tuesday 17 November 2009
Quadrant’s training department marked the end of the New Deal Self Employment Test Trading scheme celebrating an 85 per cent success rate in its final month.
The team has been running this particular New Deal training scheme in Cardiff, Swansea, Llandrindod Wells and Brecon for over seven years. The programme ended with 22 people on the scheme and 19 of them signed off the unemployment register to start their own business. Over the course of the scheme more than 300 people have signed off the unemployment register to start their own business, with Quadrant’s help and support.
Ted Hand, training manager at Quadrant, said: “We’ve ended our work on the Self Employment Test Trading scheme on a high and we are pleased with our results. We are proud of the difference we have made to the lives of our customers, the local community and the Welsh economy, as a result of the work we have done. We are now working on the Flexible New Deal programme and look forward to delivering another set of successful results.”
