LIKE so many other people I recently became unemployed and was pleasantly surprised to get a flyer through my door advertising a free 'Jobs Lost and Found' course offered by Longsands College.
It would cover topics such as preparing for redundancy, CV writing, interview skills. A few days before the course started I was notified that it had been cancelled due to a lack of interest (only two people were booked on the course).
With 2.5million people unemployed, why was this course not overrun by requests?
