We have awarded £21,769 (over one year) to Construction Youth Trust for their Budding Builders Lambeth project. This will provide a mobile classroom targeting Lambeth young people aged 16 – 30 who are NEET. Participants undertake 40 hours of guided vocational learning in construction trades with a qualified construction trainer. They also gain an accredited qualification in Health and Safety and a 5 year CSCS card (both a requirement for anyone wanting to secure work on a building site), and are supported to progress into further training, work placements and employment.
These listings follow a blog format - comments are welcome (use the 'add comment' link).
We especially welcome comments from grantees telling us how the project is going
