Young learn skills on projects - Friday 13th September 2013, Bridgnorth Journal.
A group of young people has spent the summer working on a number of projects to gain skills.
Fifteen young people spent six weeks on a course at the Wyldwoods centre in Broseley.
Founder Steph Brett said : “These 15 young people all participated for the whole summer for two days a week.
“With help from Turnaround Telford and Wrekin and the European Social Fund, working closely with Future Focus, County Training and Nova Training and several colleges, we have helped them gain placements for their future.
“Some are going to do vocational training in construction, equine studies, horticulture, health and social care, catering and functional skills.
“There have been challenges along the way but by the end of the project some great results have been achieved and we wish each and every one of them the best of luck for their futures.
“Not only have they learned new skills they have gained experiences in working with some of our regular service users including adults with learning disabilities, older people and volunteers.
“Some friendships have also developed and all have enjoyed their time at Wyldwoods and had a taste of rural education and enterprise development.”
Completion of the project was celebrated with a small open day.
