"Changing the face of coalfields communities."

Deliver Employment, Skills and Training Programmes

We have an excellent track record in helping people find work where their circumstances have made it difficult for them to make any progress. Coalfield communities have higher than average unemployment rates and the challenging economic circumstances have compounded this situation and we have developed direct responses to address this problem. We have also developed a number of education, skills and training packages equipping people with the tools to progress and as a training provider we offer a menu of accredited qualifications to grow skills levels in our communities.
