An update on our young people – from a community project to construction qualifications!

Our North Kent community project in November, funded by the Colyer Fergusson Charitable Trust, saw us partner with the Kent Youth Justice Board and Early Help teams to positively engage young people in their community.

During the project, participants completed a renovation project at a local community centre and created a sensory board for the nursery. The week long project was a chance for the young participants to get an immersive insight into a variety of construction careers, and create a lasting legacy for their local community.

Following the project, we have continued to work with the cohort of young people on gaining basic qualifications fundamental to construction careers. We are absolutely thrilled to announce that 5 out of the 6 of the group have now passed their Health & Safety Level 1 qualification with flying colours, and 3 have moved on to successfully gain their CSCS card!

We are absolutely thrilled to see this group of young people taking such positive next steps. Health and Safety level 1 and a CSCS card are essential qualifications to employment in the construction industry – we can’t wait to see what they do next!
