Gateways skills training and apprenticeships offer employment opportunities

17th November 2011

We work in areas where unemployment is well over 10%. There are over 1.2 million unemployed young people aged between 16 and 24 in the country as a whole and in our region there are 178,000 workless people, and 208,000 working age people with no qualifications at all.  For people without qualifications or experience, finding work is more than tough. Training and employment opportunities are really important, and we work to provide them.

Some of the people who’ve tried our courses talk about their experience.

We help give local people the skills they need to find work, and whenever we can we recruit local people to work in their local area.  They help others to live healthy lives, at the same time they have the chance to work. Training in skills for employment and apprenticeship schemes provide more opportunities to overcome barriers to employment.
