Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

The Mayor of Ash­ford was among the guests at the launch of a youth and adult learn­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion’s new ini­tia­tive.

Cllr David Smith, along with stake­hold­ers and young peo­ple en­rolled on learn­ing pro­grammes, were in­vited to the event, held at TBG Learn­ing’s Ash­ford cen­tre in the High Street last Fri­day.

The group has learn­ing cen­tres in Ash­ford and Gravesend and helps thou­sands of young peo­ple to gain ba­sic skills and move on to ap­pren­tice­ships, jobs and into col­lege or fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion.

Their lat­est 24- week em­ploy­a­bil­ity pro­gramme fo­cuses on func­tional skills, life skills and work skills, in­clud­ing maths, English, in­ter­view tech­nique and writ­ing a CV.

About the pro­gramme, Gay Larter from TBG Learn­ing said: “We’re re­ally ex­cited about the Work Study Pro­gramme we’ve de­vel­oped.

“We were pleased our guests could join us to hear all about it, and also get feed­back from learn­ers who are cur­rently en­rolled on learn­ing pro­grammes, as well as young peo­ple that have al­ready left us and gone on to fur­ther their ca­reers.”
