A NEW training course for would-be scaffolders is to be launched.
Astra Access Safety Training is offering unemployed people in the Yorkshire area the opportunity to build a future in scaffolding.
The project will recruit trainees for a diploma level 1 scaffolding course which provides the skills and experience required to move on to a Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme qualification before finding employment in the construction and related industries.
The course is free for young people aged 16 to 18 not in education, employment or training and to adults aged 19 and over who are receiving employment-related benefits.
The 16-week course will run at Astra’s National Access Skills Academy in Barnsley from the end of February.
Trainees will take part in practical exercises and be taught by professional tutors.
