I recently met with Release Potential CEO Gaye Hutchinson to discuss their employment-training programme Returneeships, the only scheme of its kind in the UK. Release Potential, a Northumberland based company, offers training across a wide range of public and private sector organisations, and the company has recently introduced Returneeships, which is a pre-employment project aiming to boost employability skills among people over 40 to help them return to work. Returneeships is a four-week programme- two weeks based in the classroom and a two-week work placement- funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, with the aim of improving confidence and self-esteem, as well as the chance to gain nationally recognised qualifications in IT, customer service and employability. I really enjoyed learning about the Returneeships programme and I wish Release Potential every success with the project. It is a fantastic scheme, aimed at helping older workers return to work, and with a course starting soon in Hexham, and the project rolling out across the North, I would encourage you to consider the Returneeships programme.
