Centres help youths to gain skills and jobs
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.”
