Charity benefits from funded training

July 25, 2014

Chester Community Interest Company (CIC), Reviive benefitted from West Cheshire College’s Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) training after enrolling onto an equality and diversity and first aid training course.

Reviive, which recycles furniture and household goods that people no longer need and helps young people and the long-term unemployed get valuable work experience, benefitted from the training which is funded from the European Social Fund (ESF).

Caroline Liversage, Co-ordinator for Reviive, Chester, from Reviive, said: “"As a new business it is beneficial to be able to access skills funding through SSW enabling us to up-skill our staff, which as an organisation we believe is key to the progression of the company." 

“Our organisation has really benefitted from the training. It provides our staff with more knowledge and skills which has really boosted their confidence and has helped them to improve in their job.

“We were so impressed by the whole package. The tutor, content of the course and College facilities were absolutely fantastic.

“We look forward to continuing our partnership with West Cheshire College and we hope to benefit from more of the SSW courses in the future.”

Carol Bennett, ESF Project Manager at West Cheshire College, said: “We have been delighted to support Reviive with their training as they are such an influential business in the area.

“The SSW courses are a great way for SMEs, charities and CICs who may not have the budget for training to up-skill their staff.

“We are still offering a wide range of fully funded training to organisations in Cheshire, so anybody looking for training should get in touch with the College for more information.”
