MP Jack Lopresti impressed by Suited Booted Recruited

Jack Lopresti visited South Gloucestershire and Stroud (SGS) College to take a look at the College's successful Suited Booted Recruited course in action and spent time speaking with learners, asking about the course and discussing job prospects in Filton and surrounding areas.

Jack comments: "I am most impressed by the way in which SGS have structured

Suited Booted Recruited. The course promotes real social mobility by offering positive benefits to students of all ages and backgrounds. They learn a wide range of skills necessary in the workplace and gain a real boost in confidence to help their prospects of gaining employment.'

This two week course gives participants recognised qualifications valued by employers with a guaranteed job interview at the end of the course.
