Yesterday I visited the award winning Grangetown Training and Employment Hub to hear about the great work they are doing getting local people into work.
It is a partnership between Redcar & Cleveland Council, MGT and the Future Regeneration of Grangetown (FROG). Working together, they have won an award for the innovative service they are providing.
Meeting the team at the Hub, it was brilliant to hear the passion and commitment they have for making a difference in an area that has suffered a lot of deprivation. In total so far, over 600 people have successful found work through the hub, including many at the MGT site. They have also linked people up with other important support like training and advice too.
If you need help finding work and think the Hub could support you, visit the Grangetown Neighbourhood Centre on Bolckow Road to register.
A lot of people still need work in our area, and others have to travel away from their families to find it. Big investment projects like the MGT power plant and the Sirius Minerals mine – and crucially future developments on the former SSI site - are so important for creating more job opportunities for local people. With more jobs available, services like the Hub can support even more people into work.
