FAST TRACK INTO CONSTRUCTION
A fast track training programme, Fast Track into Construction, gives trainees the opportunity to gain work related qualifications, try out different trades and gain practical work experience on a construction site.
As part of the training Speller Metcalfe is providing work placements on the Future Space project at the council’s Civic Centre.
Des O’Neil, Speller Metcalfe Managing Director, said: “The Fast Track into Construction Programme is a fantastic incentive to engage unemployed people with an industry that offers vast opportunities across a range of sectors.
“By providing access to the knowledge and skills of our site team at the Civic Centre Future Space project, we hope to whet the appetite and provide an insight for anybody interested in construction as a future career.”
The programme is organised by City of Wolverhampton Council, in partnership with City of Wolverhampton College, Wolverhampton Homes’ Employability Team, the Department for Work and Pensions, and Jobchange.
It follows the successful implementation of the Fast Track into Construction initiative with building contractor Kier, where three of the participants have gone on to secure jobs with sub-contractors, T Costello and Choice Plumping.
A recruitment event for the Speller Metcalfe programme will take place on Friday 27 January, at 10am, at City of Wolverhampton College, Wellington Road, Bilston, WV14 6BT.
