Coalfields Worx

Coalfields Worx aims to give those who are most removed from the labour market a bridge back to the world of work by improving participants’ general employability. 

The core feature is paid work, together with training.  In order to limit the risk of replacing ‘real’ jobs, the work is environmental and in addition to economic activities. 

This project is currently being delivered in Kincardine in partnership with Fife Employment Access Trust, offering industry related training and qualifications coupled with work that delivers on Kincardine charrette and the environmental projects identified.

There is one very clear and simple message from all of our community consultations across our coalfield communities, and that’s the biggest way that CRT can make a difference is by helping local residents take advantage of new jobs and training opportunities.
