Get U Started Training Ltd

Young people socially excluded from their schools and communities have been given the chance to gain NVQ qualifications in construction.

Get U Started Training Ltd train young people who have been socially excluded from schools and their communities with the aim of improving their self-development, social skills and job prospects. A grant from County Durham Community Foundation has allowed the group to provide a 21-week construction course for youngsters through paying the salary of a construction supervisor. These young people would have normally left school without qualifications, but this grant has enabled the organisation to deliver accredited construction qualifications.
