A key objective for the NDC Trust while renovating the properties is to provide opportunities for trainees, predominantly young people, furthest from the labour market to engage in work experience on a construction site. We aim to produce work ready trainees, with sufficient experience to move on into further training or employment, which the NDC Trust may be able to identify through our partners.
The trainees have the opportunity to undertake tasks necessary to gain them a level 1 OCN (Open College Network) nationally recognised qualification. The Trust has so far provided work based learning opportunities for more than 100 trainees and supported 29 trainees to attain a level 1 OCN qualification, while 19 have successfully moved into further education or employment.
For more information or if you would like to join our trainees contact your local job centre or send an email to us via the contact page.
