At Hartlepool College we work with an excellent local charity organisation called Opening Doors. This charity supports our learners, predominantly young people furthest from the labour market, to engage in work experience on a construction site.
Through our partnership we aim to produce work ready trainees, with sufficient experience to move on into further training or employment.
Should we win the vote the financial support will help even more learners be able to be supervised while carrying out work. The money will also go towards the learners having some tools to work with and also using public transport to get to and from the sites.
