HITZ Employability Courses are designed to support an individual successfully gaining a job, progressing in a chosen field, preparing the individual for further study and supporting the development of techniques required for successful independent living. 

These qualifications are aimed at anyone who wants to live a more independent life, progress in education and/or their employment prospects such as get into a job, develop on the job or move onto the next job, as they progress along the career ladder.

Learning on HITZ courses is not all classroom based. We create a fun, exciting and safe environment where learners themselves never want to leave. We ensure that we enjoy what we deliver and ensure that you will enjoy learning.

During the Certificate in Employability Skills Level 1 course you will be able to spend time working within the community to develop your skills for future employment. We will support you along the way, to build your CV as well as your confidence.
