Edinburgh-based Trades Training School is five years old. To celebrate, they are giving away 2 x courses worth £850, plus 2 x courses worth £200, to the first four people to apply in person at the school centre in the Peffermill Industrial Estate (block 3, unit 2).
Antony O’Neil, director, Trades Training School says: “It has been a tough few years for everyone but it has made us adapt and we now offer a wider range of courses to provide more opportunities for people to get back into work.
“Working with employability organisations such as Inspiring Young People, the public sector initiative for youths aged 16-19 who are not in employment, education or training, and the Jet programme where we train young people and also provide on-site experience is very rewarding.”
The school offers a range of courses to suit ex forces personnel, qualified tradesmen seeking to add a new skill, property managers, and anyone looking to learn a new trade. They also work with a number of charities and organisations, providing specially tailored support and training to young and disadvantaged people.
