I just read with great interest your edit dated 25 February 2005 regarding the training of Door Supervisors in (Sussex) Brighton.
The story mentions 25% of Door Supervisors failing examinations due to poor literacy and criminal convictions. The criminal convictions may be true, but we as a company offer a confidential skills screening service to all candidates attending our courses.
If we find someone who cannot read, we supply trained personnel who can read the questions and as the examinations are multiple choice, we also read the possible answers.
This service is offered as part of our equal opportunity policy and has been extremely successful and has lead to some individuals attending Skills for Life courses at local colleges gaining level 1 qualifications in numeracy and literacy with an option of progressing.
This may be an opportunity for people who suffer from a lack of confidence and low self esteem to get onto the educational ladder for which there are free flexible training courses available.
We continue to offer our services throughout the South East of England and are still promoting and continuing to run courses in Brighton.
