Skills Village to throw open its doors again
Invitation for second free construction visit
Following a successful Construction Skills Village open day, invitations are now being sent out for a second event, taking place on March 20 at Middle Deepdale, Eastfield. There is a maximum of 35 places per session for the Open Day which provides students and people of all ages with an opportunity for work experience in bricklaying, joinery, and groundworks, with industry talks on apprenticeships and employment.
Supporters of the skills village include Kebbell Developments, Guy Bentley, Keepmoat Group, North Yorkshire County Council, Scarborough Borough Council, Yorkshire Coast Homes, Sirius Minerals, Construction Industry Training Board, Makita, Jewson’s, Screwfix, Travis Perkins and the Sanctuary Group.
Graham Ratcliffe, managing director, said: “Thanks to everyone involved for a fantastic open day, which attracted more than 60 people – and we are now set for our construction course from March 6.
“We are available for anyone working with students leaving school this year, or students which have been displaced and not in training or employment, or also for unemployed people aged over 18, all of whom may be looking for an exciting and well paid career in construction once qualified.”
