50% off NCRQ Safety for Managers for under 21s
Article by Eve and Georgia, Student Support Officers at NCRQ
The job market is changing. In the last year alone, our world has seen more change and turbulence than most of us have seen in our lifetimes. From football to festivals, concerts to christenings, and holidays to house hunting, we have all had to put aspects of our life on hold in the interest of keeping ourselves and others safe and healthy.
Back in March, we were struck by the impact that the pandemic had on individuals and businesses, and as a health and safety qualification provider, we felt a duty to take action.
Offering our Safety for Managers qualification completely free of charge, we aimed to support the country’s efforts to improve health and safety standards within businesses across the UK and to thank those working tirelessly to keep us safe. With over 20,000 enrolments during the offer period alone, this small gesture has had a huge impact and, as more and more of us return to work, we are proud that NCRQ graduates can feel confident in keeping themselves, their colleagues and members of the public safe.
As we enter a new academic year and adjust to the ‘new normal’, we have become increasingly aware of the challenges young people are currently facing. With UK unemployment at its highest in two years, and A-Level and university students facing difficult decisions surrounding their futures, we feel compelled to offer our support again.
In the next phase of our mission to put ‘purpose beyond profit’, we want to support the next generation of working professionals. This is why we have decided to offer a 50% discount on our Level 3 Safety for Managers qualification, exclusively to 18 to 21-year-olds. To put that into perspective, that’s the equivalent of an A-Level for just £95 (ex VAT).
Our Safety for Managers qualification is so much more than basic health and safety training. You will be studying real-life scenarios, delving deeper than just the theory in order to fully understand the application and implications of health and safety management in a variety of settings. Enjoy immersive short films by an Oscar-nominated director – which will have a real and sustained impact on your knowledge and understanding of health and safety in action – and complete a true-to-life assessment that will prepare you for taking a proactive role in health and safety practices at work.
Whether you are considering university, starting an apprenticeship, or venturing into the working world – with health and safety now firmly at the heart of everything we do, there has never been a better time to develop your professional skills, build your CV, and boost your employment opportunities.
