CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) BBO ACTIVITIES UPDATE

May 5, 2020

The Norfolk Community College team are here to help!

Although times might be different at the moment, we want to assure you that we are still offering training and employability support. Here are just some of the ways that we’re making this possible.

Training –

We are continuing to provide training support, both over the phone and via webcam. There are many sites offering free training
resources, such as the Open University. One of our participants has completed an online diploma, which is fantastic to hear!

We are also helping people access a range of free online training, delivered by the Norfolk County Council’s Adult Learning team.

In addition, we have launched a new online platform, which has been set up by ACE. On this learning platform, you will find groups for a range of different topics, including community job search and mental wellbeing. There will be an online tutor who can
support participants through instant messenger. The platform can be accessed via a digital device. For those who do not have
access to one, the information can be printed and sent out.

Employment –

We are working closely with local businesses to help them find the staff they need to continue to operate. We are providing
employability and job searching support over the phone. We can assist you in creating a CV and applying for vacancies.

Activity Packs –

For those unable to access the internet, we have compiled a range of activity packs. Topics include: job searching, health and
safety, mindfulness and much more. If you haven’t received one but would like one, please let us know.

Health & Wellbeing –

During these difficult times, it is important to take care of yourself. To support you, we have designed mindfulness activity packs and have been making wellbeing telephone calls.

Social Media – 

On our social media channels, we have been sharing tips, advice and useful links – so make sure to check those out. Over on our brand new Facebook page, you can find job vacancies and keep up to date with any news.

Please get in touch if there’s anything you feel we could do to assist you
