Northwood Together & First Ark - Apprenticeship Programme

Northwood Together are working with First Ark to bring a number of pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeships to young people in Northwood.

As part of the programme we have comissioned Sport Alive to engage with young people in Northwood to support them on their journey.  This will include CV support and interview technique.

We are pleased to announce that 3 Northwood local young people have been successful in taking up apprenticeships with First Ark/KHT.

Also, in 2019 we will be funding another 5 apprenticeships with First Ark for local young people in Northwood.  

More details to follow.

Fit 4 Life Courses 2019

We have comissioned Home Start Knowlsey to run a Fit4Life course for Northwood Together families. The course covers:

Identifying stress and coping strategies: providing parents with the ability to identify stress as a part of life and giving them coping strategies to help them deal with stress. 

Active Lifestyles: Every family is offered places on an activity day which helps participants understand the benefits of light daily exercise. It also gives them an opportunity to experience new activities they might not have tried before. 

Healthy Eating and Growing Your Own: Practical sessions which teach healthy cooking skills and give basic nutritional advice, and simple gardening techniques. 

Using Local Services: Parents are supported to access local services such as GP and dental services, register at Children’s Centres and seek smoking cessation services. 

Budgeting: Learning strategies to manage their money more effectively, prioritise budgets and optimise their finances.

If you would like more information on these courses please contact Lisa on 07572 638 714.
