Are you long term unemployed? Then why not book onto the next Making Wood Work Employability Programme run by CRNS member Glasgow Wood Recycling. Commencing on 4th August 2015, this Big Lottery Funded programme aims to work with those furthest away from the labour market, supporting them to overcome barriers and make progress towards employment.
Making Wood Work is a ten week programme consisting of a wide range of health and safety, woodworking, recycling and customer care activities. The programme is accredited by the National Community Wood Recycling Project and has been designed to help long term unemployed people gain the skills, confidence and experience they need to make progress towards sustainable outcomes in volunteering, training, education and employment. The training will take place at the Glasgow Wood Recycling workshop at 739 South Street and will take place Tuesday to Friday. Travel expenses, lunch and all personal protective equipment will be provided.
Glasgow Wood Recycling is a social enterprise and charity, established in 2007 and committed to reducing the amount of wood needlessly going to landfill by finding creative ways to recycle and reuse this valuable natural resource. They make and sell home and garden furniture, all ethically produced and hand-crafted in their workshop, and through these activities they provide volunteer and training opportunities as a practical way of tackling poverty and social exclusion.
