ICM Foundation CIC
We provide learning and training courses, workshops towards employment pathways and work experience opportunities as part of our programmes.
At ICM Foundation we run an NOCN accredited training centre which means we can give qualifications and certificates for our training and courses.
There are two courses we are running now.
They are both level 1 qualifications in Training, Personal Development and Employment. The first course is Creative Media and the second course is Sports Leadership.
The course groups are small and you will be with up to 8 other people in a group. Each qualification could take you either one or two years depending on whether you attend for one day a week or two. Working together in small group’s means you get to make some new and lasting friendships.
Places on the qualifications are on a rolling programme so this means if there are no vacancies you can register to enol on the next course intake.
We have two supported work experience projects within ICM which are one day a week.
The first one is planning and running a newspaper and there are different job roles as part of a team. The second one is office work experience. Work experience is on a separate day to the course workshops taking place.
We also have several partners and increasing new partners outside of ICM who are offering our current trainees work experience as part of the qualifications.
We are often going out in small groups, with support, we visit places for work experience, museums, other services and take part in other workshops and events. There are lots of different community settings that we go to build on the learning of new skills. So, not all of our courses and workshops happen at our building or in one place. You get to learn about and visit new and different places and meet new people.
All necessary equipment for the course is available. We have Tutors and Mentors supporting you.
You will need to arrange your own transport or get support from your Social Worker, family or support service.
Lunch – Bring your own and also bring your own lunch or have funds to buy this locally.
