Cynthia Barker writes...Non-stop with immigration work here at Concept Care! Last week was our busiest week ever for visa appeal cases as the Home Office ramps up leave to remain refusals for migrant workers who just want to work in the UK.
I am amazed watching shows like 'Benefits Street', a Channel 4 documentary which follows unemployed (some virtually unemployable) British families living on state benefits who say they have "no opportunities" to find a job in the UK, because Britain is literally a land of opportunity!
Why do you think so many Filipinos, Indians, Chinese, Bulgarians, Poles, Italians, Spanish, Romanians and Croatians are coming to the UK every day to find work and start a new life?
Not only are there hundreds of thousands of UK job vacancies, the British Government and EU even fund free apprenticeship courses - with paid work placements - so you can upgrade your skills and 'earn while you learn'!
Colleges, such as London Cactus College are offering free apprenticeships with paid jobs in Health and Social Care, Business Admin and ITC. The college find work placements for their students to run alongside the funded vocational courses.
Migrant workers find it hard to believe that young people here are not grabbing these jobs with both hands. If this scheme existed in my native Philippines job applicants would be queuing around the block!
EU/UK residents interested in any of the above training and UK job opportunities email should email a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
