We'll do this by running information sessions and training courses in a range of different subject areas. With courses to suit all backgrounds and abilities, the sessions will run in local communities, making them easy to access and some specific training centres on the doorstep of building sites, so we’re close to the action. We are keen to help people of all backgrounds and abilities, so we'll be tailoring our support and training to make it easy for you to take those first steps towards employment.
