Training Aim

You will also develop critical awareness of the changing nature of work, set achievable goals for work experience and appreciate the importance of safety and welfare in the workplace. Alongside developing capabilities, both personal and vocational, to successfully meet challenges in the workplace, you will review career choices in light of your own aspirations, experience, abilities and available options.
