Eoin Parker, deputy director for pre-employment and basic skills from Business, Innovation and Skills, recently visited Academy Transformation Trust Further Education at Sutton Community Academy.

During his visit, Eoin spent time chatting with tutors and learners from the essential employability skills courses, as well as meeting staff from the further education team to discuss functional skills, community learning and the wide range of adult learning opportunities offered by the academy.

In addition, Eoin also met staff from the JobCentre Plus who work in partnership with the further education department. Support is jointly provided to people who are currently unemployed to receive high quality learning which equips and empowers them to go forward and gain employment.
