Devon and Cornwall Housing (DCH) are running a skills academy for all residents of a DCH household aged 18+, to help them gain employment skills in the construction industry.
There is an open day on Wednesday 8 November, at 10.30-12, at St John’s Hall, Alverton Street, Penzance.
The free CSC course (Construction Skills Certification) runs from Monday 13 to Friday 24 November, (2 weeks), and there will be hands-on training at a Penzance construction site in early 2018 for 4 weeks.
Mentoring and support are offered throughout.
DCH has excellent links with related employers, so there is a real chance of a job offer at the end of the programme. So far 85% of participants have moved into further training or employment.
