Meadow Mill, (PressExposure) March 11, 2009 -- As the list of companies making redundancies grows longer by the day, a Stockport based training company specialising in DIY and construction courses is offering those affected the opportunity to learn valuable new skills.
The DIY School is gaining an excellent reputation for well run, practical and inspiring courses that equip people with the essential skills to change their career, generate new income opportunities or take control of their own destiny by becoming self employed.
They even work with employers to offer special packages to retrain their workforce to avoid redundancies or, in the event of redundancies being made, offer affected employees special rates to help them find a new way of earning a living.
There is a wide range of DIY courses on offer at The DIY School to suit all ages and abilities. Women excel in the mixed courses. There are no âladies onlyâ classes because the skills learnt are unisex, and often the women put the men to shame!
The DIY Schoolâs courses also appeal to trades people looking to expand their portfolio of services. For example, an electrician might be interested in plastering courses to offer more services to the client and create another income stream.
There is even an opportunity for children to pick up a trowel or hammer through the DIY Schoolâs unique Kids Courses, which see children working alongside their parents to master a new skill, strengthen the family bond and open up career options.
The DIY Schoolâs courses are affordable and pay for themselves quickly as candidates start to earn money with their new found skills or save money by doing jobs around the house rather than employing a tradesperson.
The testimonials on the web site at www.theDIYschool.co.uk speak of a truly outstanding, practical learning environment with fun, patient and experienced trainers, safe and spacious learning bays and time to master the essentials.
Previous candidates cannot praise The DIY School highly enough and many have started their own businesses after completing a course.
After just two to four days of training, most emerge confident, knowledgeable and inspired to get started on their own projects.
