Dudley MP Ian Austin will join organisers from the Black Country Trading Group (BCTG) to launch a new community training scheme in Kates Hill that will provide help and run advice sessions for local people.
The scheme will assist residents to get back in to employment through help writing CV’s and giving interview advice as well as practical sessions such as cooking, first aid and budgetary help.
He will join the opening on Wednesday 11th November at 12:30 at The Citadel, Salvation Army, North Street Dudley.
BCTG provides training programmes and help get young people in to apprenticeships across the Black Country. The scheme in Kates Hill will run every Wednesday from the 11th of November in The Citadel.
Ian Austin said:
“We need to make education and skills our number one priority in Dudley because it’s the only way that we will attract new investment and jobs to the area.
“BCTG does brilliant work offering new skills and training to local young people and I am really pleased they are running these sessions in Kates Hill.
“The closure of the St Thomas Network has left a gap in the community and I hope that this will go some way in providing support to the community.”
