Get High is an exciting opportunity for unemployed people aged 18+ to take up free working at heights training.
It is Manor House Development Trust’s bespoke Working at Height training programme, which takes advantage of the rise in skyscraper construction and a growing demand from employers for workers with these skills. This course has allowed people, who would not normally be able to afford it, the opportunity to gain an IRATA Level 1 qualification and 5 others – to the value of £2,000 per person.
Get High is funded by Woodberry Works, a Hackney Council training and employment scheme; and delivered by London’s premier working at height training company BeSafety. Other partners include London Legacy Development Corporation.
Get High cohorts 1 and 2 have now finished.
The course is made up of the following modules, 6 of which are accredited:
- Asbestos awareness
- PASMA alloy tower – safe use of mobile access towers
- Ladder use
- Working safely
- First aid emergency
- Window cleaning techniques
- Abseiling IRATA Level 1- industrial rope access training
- Fitness sessions
Get High’s latest successful cohort trained 12 unemployed Hackney residents. Here’s what they said:
Nathan: “This whole course has been amazing! I have made great bonds with people that I would not have crossed paths with before otherwise. I passed with excellence so feeling pretty pleased with myself at the minute. I have contacts for work now, so a massive thank you, you have done a great thing and I hope this course will continue in the future”.
Robert: “This course is directly applicable to a wide variety of jobs”.
Billy: “The course made me a lot fitter! The trainers were great, they made sure dyslexia didn’t get in my way. The catering at the Redmond Community Centre was great! And thanks for the Oyster card, I couldn’t have done the course without it”!
