Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE - EMILY MUR­RAY

YOUNG peo­ple who are cur­rently out of education or at risk of ex­clu­sion are be­ing of­fered train­ing from a Mac­cles­field com­pany.

Trade Skills, based on Lon­don Road Ter­race, of­fer stu­dents an al­ter­na­tive cur­ricu­lum with train­ing for vo­ca­tional skills such as brick­lay­ing, car­pen­try and plas­ter­ing.

Mac­cles­field MP David Rut­ley met man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Paul Keenan and man­ager Mike McNa­mara to dis­cuss the com­pany’s work with young peo­ple in Mac­cles­field.

Mr Rut­ley said: “It was great to find out more about the im­por­tant work which Trade Skills is do­ing in Mac­cles­field.

“Trade Skills of­fers an al­ter­na­tive en­vi­ron­ment to young peo­ple where they can dis­cover their po­ten­tial in a way which the con­ven­tional class­room might not be able to pro­vide.

“I would like to thank Paul and Mike for their hard work, and wish them ev­ery suc­cess for the fu­ture.”

Up to 15 young peo­ple will be learn­ing with the com­pany at any one time.

Mr Rut­ley also dis­cussed with the com­pany ways in which aware­ness of their ser­vices can be raised with lo­cal schools and other or­gan­i­sa­tions.
