Complete Skills Solutions and The Andy Reid Standing Tall Foundation work together to provide essential resources for those seeking employment

Adult Education training provider Complete Skills Solutions, formerly known as Innovative Alliance, have become one of two beneficiaries to receive laptops from The Andy Reid Standing Tall Foundation. In an effort to close the digital divide and provide vital resources and help for job seekers. This donation assists individuals to undertake training and better their chances of finding employment.

The Andy Reid Standing Tall Foundation aims to help tackle social issues such as homelessness, debt management, relationships and mental health. Through his associations, Andy realised there are many different deserving organisations of support. His focus was to target those that are in need of direct and practical support. So he made the decision to use the foundation to support organisations, such as training providers and recruitment companies. Two of the many sectors that help those faced with disadvantages.

A partnership between the two grew through the desire to help people. Additionally, the two organisations are working together to provide resources to support better life opportunities.

Inspired to donate and provide help for job seekers in the UK

The Foundation recently received several laptops from Cash Converters UK. Subsequently, they were inspired to donate these to Complete Skills Solutions. Complete Skills Solutions are supporting learners to study online.

Standing Tall Foundation CEO, John Tabern said;
‘’By providing learners with digital resources, Complete Skills Solutions are helping tackle the digital divide across Liverpool City Region and the wider North West. Currently, 82% of all job openings online require at least basic digital skills. This skills shortage limits the opportunities for those people seeking employment. Providing learners with this equipment will be a real advantage to improving their job opportunities”.

Complete Skills Solutions CEO, Ian Green said;
“We are extremely pleased to be working with The Andy Reid Standing Tall Foundation. The equipment will support our learners to access our online learning and to develop their digital confidence and skills. The Foundation has a genuine ambition and mission to provide support and help to those who need it most”.

Armed Forces Covenant
In March 2020, Complete Skills Solutions joined several businesses and organisations, in signing the Armed Forces Covenant. This demonstrates their commitment to supporting those who have or are currently serving in the Armed Forces. Above all, the Covenant is a true sign of support to veterans and their families.

Moreover, individuals made redundant recently or currently searching for work can rely on Complete Skills Solutions. They offer funded short courses for individuals to find their way back to work. As a result, short courses help improve individuals employment chances. The adult education provider gives learners the knowledge and tools to progress into employment. Luckily, many courses are attached to immediate job opportunities. Their advisors work with learners to establish clear pathways for their development. Not to mention, the amount of support and advice offered throughout the entire process.
