NATIONAL FOOTBALL MUSEUM KICK UP THE NORTH
 

Star date: 21st July 2012

DREAM CAREER CHANGE?

Kick Up The North
Monday 30th July 2:30-5pm free
National Football Museum (Urbis)

Kick Up The North is a `not for profit football and media related project', offering anyone aged 18-24 help to "realise your full potential and achieve your dream career". It's running a free workshop at the National Football Museum in the Urbis building on July 30th with the aim of getting work placements, training or job interviews. Too good to be true?  Well, at least G4S ain't involved…

Kick Up The North's founder, Noy Shani, is running his second workshop for young people on 30th July, aiming to help them break the rut that their lives might be in…

"I stand for nobody having to even think 'Well this is how it is' and `I cannot do anything about it' or 'It's the government's fault, my education, upbringing or financial situation'" he told the Salford Star.

Hmmm. Plainly, Salford's problems are caused by Government policy and poverty. But, despite this rather large handicap, Noy's workshop aims to turn up the life chances of anyone who attends, with a battery of `personal coaching' experts on hand to help "job seekers overcome the hurdles keeping them out of employment and from achieving their dreams".

As well as the unemployed, the workshop is also directed at `people who are considering career change or unhappy with their current calling' and its theme is a football related media/journalism career.

Kick Up The North is a not for profit project and, in its favour, isn't financed by Government target driven schemes that force people off benefits. It's well more touchy feely than that, being an offshoot of Landmark Education and Noy's Landmark Education Self Expression and Leadership Programme.

The controversial programme has been called everything from a `cult' to `life changing' but journalists who have infiltrated its courses have found nothing particularly wrong with it (see here). It certainly changed Noy's life for the better. We asked him why he is doing this…

"I have a passion for nobody going through life confused or thinking they are destined to be unhappy with their occupation, out of employment or unfulfilled in what they do" he said "When I was 16 back in 2001 in my home country, Israel, I got involved in bringing to life a struggling community football fans' website of my home town football team Maccabi Netanya FC. It started as a hobby and I become a writer and football journalist through it.

"Unexpectedly I started noticing that people who volunteered with me and contributed their own time and effort seriously became accomplished journalists, spokesmen or national photographers" he added "Once realising it, I saw this website as a platform for people to recognise and realise their dreams in what they want the most in life. Having gone through several Landmark Education programmes I know that everything is possible for those who distinguish the difference between the facts of what happened and their interpretation of it."

Kick Up The North is supported by Helen Adams of the Manchester Coaching Academy, Steve Waters of EnGage Coaching and Mentoring, Adam Butler of Adam's Job Cloud, Denise Lambert, the National Football Museum's Learning and Communities Officer and Ken Bennett, editor and former publisher of the Saddleworth Independent newspaper. Some of these people will be speaking at the Workshop.

For anyone who is `aiming to help them break the rut that their lives might be in', this might be worth a try…

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

Star date: 22nd October 2018

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

BOLTON NHS HOSPITAL WORKERS CELEBRATE HUGE PAY VICTORY

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
