Extending our services: Providing training for Ceredigion Coastal Project
We have recently extended our services to provide training for the Ceredigion Coastal Project. Set up in the spring of 2012, the EEU funded project provides support for more than two hundred vulnerable clients who find it difficult to enter or return to the employment market.
A celebratory event, attended by Coastal management and support staff, representatives of the Welsh Government, and the CEO of Ceredigion County Council, was held in Aberaeron at the end of November. The well supported day provided an opportunity to mark the official opening of the project, highlight the work being done and focus on some of the project’s high flyers.
Gwalia trainer Doug Terry was also on hand to represent us and to hand out OCN certificates to the first group of students to achieve accreditation via company’s training programme. Doug said: “Our experience of delivering accredited training means we are ideally placed to provide a quality, flexible service to a diverse range of client groups. We look forward to a long and rewarding association with the Coastal Project.”
