Training for young people
Young people in Amble aged 16-18 years, who are unemployed may soon be able to gain pre-employment qualifications and be paid up to £30 per week while learning. This is thanks to national training organisation CSV. The organisation is a registered charity, and is hoping to open premises in Amble.
“We currently operate from centres in Newcastle, Blyth and Hexham providing support for people of all ages looking for work” said Ian Young, CSV’s Training and Employment Manager.
“We know there is a need for training for young people in Amble and that’s what we are planning to do”.
Foundation Learning Manager Simon Clennell told us “We have a great team of staff who understand the barriers facing young people. We have an extensive programme offering employability skills and introductory courses for young people wanting to move into construction, leisure and tourism, sports leadership, hairdressing and others. We also offer support with maths, English and ICT.
“The programme runs three days per week and can include work experience placements. It’s all about helping young people to develop their skills and confidence and ultimately help them get jobs and apprenticeships or move on to college,” says Simon.
