Based at the college’s £21m Hafod building, Director of Commercial Operations Maria Stevens is thrilled with how the; beauty and hair salon, restaurant and training academy, coffee bar and florist performed in the last 12 months. Despite the pandemic.
“The response has been amazing when you consider the challenges we’ve faced, particularly in recruitment,” said Maria.
Supporting Mental Health In The Workplace
Secondly, with more people based at home or operating in hybrid conditions because of the Covid-19 pandemic, their workplace is now often the kitchen table or a spare room.
This has raised widespread issues, from isolation to anxiety. This is why Coleg Cambria’s Northop Business School unveiled a suite of programmes to support; managers, directors, HR staff and employees dealing with these issues every day.
Level 2 and Level 3 courses include Highfields Introduction to Mental Health Awareness; Introduction to First Aid for Mental Health; Mental Health for Managers; Certificate in Mental Health; Mental Health First Aid Wales, and NEBOSH Working with Wellbeing.
Mental Health and Wellbeing lecturer Caroline McDermott says learning is available in person or online. Specialist, tailored modules can also be created for specific industries.
The courses will be running throughout 2022. For more information, visit firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 30 30 006.
