As the new Taco Bell in Grantham was built, they needed employees. Job centre Plus in Grantham reached out to us, and asked if we could offer a SWAP, a Sector-based workplace academy programme. The programme offers employability skills training such as interview skills, CV writing, time management and more. It is a national accredited gateway qualification, and offered all applicants a guaranteed interview with Taco Bell at the end of their training. Grantham College had 12 people on the SWAP, and after training, 9 of these went on to have careers with Taco Bell after successful interviews. One student even went on to have an interview and secured a place at a law firm! Here’s what some students had to say:
“i enjoyed how relaxed and informative the course was. It was very educational, Cai and Vicki were both very kind and helpful.”
“I enjoyed meeting new people and learning new things. I’ve also made some new friends!”
“The course made the class a team, sharing experiences and helping each other. We were treated as adults, and there was respect for everyone”
“I enjoyed meeting new people, that i’ll have a chance to work with in the future! The staff have been really nice and helpful.”
We wish these students the best of luck in their new careers!
