The EDS team are thrilled to have newly opened  ‘The Skills Centre’ in Dudley, based at the Holly Hall Academy.The Skills Centre is a collaborative project between both EDS and the Holly Hall Academy. The Skills Centre will be supporting students at key stages 3 and 4 from all schools across the Dudley and Sandwell boroughs.

Whilst in attendance, learners have the opportunity of studying functional Skills qualifications in literacy and numeracy,  BTEC qualifications in Construction or a Level 1 certificate in Hair & Beauty!

The local schools will also have the opportunity to take full advantage of our exclusive ‘LIFT’ project which gives our learners the availability to attend  a work experience placement in a vocation of their choice!

Satellite Centre Update

Another busy week here at the Satellite Centre for all learners, especially the Year 11 learners who have all been sitting their Edexcel Level 1 Numeracy and Literacy exams. There are high hopes for the Year 11’s exams as some have already received their certificates! Revision has been at the top of the ‘to do’ list in preparation for the up coming exams, this has also been beneficial for other learners in the centre. The focus of last week was ‘writing a formal letter’, something that has been covered previously but learners found it good practice for the future.

We also focused on Comprehension activities, which we will continue next week.

Lift project & health and safety course!

Another busy week this week on our Lift Project and our Health and Safety Course!

With a couple of students well and truly in the depths of their health and safety workbook we have taken the time this week to watch the BBC documentary on ‘The Children Who Built Victorian Britain.’ Not only is this documentary a great insight into the past but it’s also a great example of why health and safety exists and how it protects both adults and children alike.

Lift project – launch into further training

Lift project! 

A new week means some new work placements on the horizon for our most recent Lift students.
With placements due to start in catering and motor vehicle garages this week I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the local Shropshire businesses that have been working with us so far this academic year!
For many work places this is a very busy time of the year so its the ideal time for an extra set of helping hands and a great time for a student to gain some quality work experience.
