BALI’s Education Officer Stephen Ensell addressed students the Cannington Campus as part of the launch of BALI Chalk Fund’s new enrichment programme. The innovative scheme is aimed at ensuring that student get the recognition their efforts deserve, making them more employable and work ready than many other students that can ill afford to self-fund the registration and certification fees that mean so much to the industries employers. As well as receiving essential safety and environmental train by attending a ROLO course, they will also be able to gain funding for a LISS CSCS card registration and touch screen test, which is the passport to construction sites across the UK. BALI Chalk Fund Trustee Paul Cowell said ”This initiative is proving to demonstrate great value for the chalk fund, with the partner college committing to delivering the training as part of the course syllabus and the Chalk Fund paying the modest registration and assessment fees, this effectively saves the potential employers up to 70% on the same training, and means they can go straight to work when they get into employment”
