Latest news and information from BCW Training Ltd.
BCW Training Ltd held its annual prizing evening in Greenlight Gateway Garden Centre on Tuesday 7th August 2012. The evening was a great success and was attended by the students, careers service representatives, members of the business community and local counsellors. It was an opportunity to showcase the hard-work of our learners whilst providing a good networking platform for BCW Training Ltd and its connections in the wider community.
Guest speakers and business owners: Zoe Campbell and John Quinn spoke about how BCW Training Ltd provided them with the training and confidence to start up their own businesses. Greenlight Gateway provided delicious food and refreshments and a great evening was had by all.
There has been a marked increase in the number of our Training For Success participants gaining placements. The number of participants on placement has increased by 30% over the last few months.
