County Training Supports New Shrewsbury Library Guide

County Training has welcomed the launch of a new Service Guide at Shrewsbury Library. The handy booklet not only details general information on library services, but also training opportunities in the local area.

County Training Business Development Officer Kerry O’Brien said “We welcome the introduction of this brand-new guide, which brings together essential information on library and education services in the local area. County Training is proud to appear in the guide and introduce pre-apprenticeships, apprenticeships and our free distance learning courses to a wider audience and let employers know that we can help them recruit an apprentice. The guide is free to anyone and can be picked up in Shrewsbury library.”

Richard Vaughan the distance learning course marker at County Training went on to say “Having the ability to study at your own pace, in your home at a time that suits you is an ideal way to enhance your skills and knowledge. County Training offers a wide range of free, Government funded distance learning courses across a variety of subject areas, so having this information in a convenient location in the town centre library can only be a good thing.”

Anyone that would like to pick up a copy of the guide is encouraged to visit the library and pick one up at reception. The most popular Distance Learning courses with County Training are detailed below and anyone who would like to find out more about these courses is encouraged to email
