With a primary training centres in Ystrad Myanch (Caerphilly) and Port Talbot, we have a strong commitment to improving the skills of the people and businesses in our communities and we have an extremely strong corporate social responsibility. We thrive on fundraising for local charities and we provide intensive work-preparation support to the unemployed. We are passionate about helping people achieve things that they never thought were possible and we strive to help make South Wales a better place to live and do business.
We also promote our ESDGC policy with our staff, learners, employers and other stakeholders.
We work with the following partners to help increase employment levels through various employability projects and work clubs:
- Job Centre Plus
- Careers Wales
- Communities First
- Wales Council for Voluntary Action
- Youth Engagement Teams
In fact, in 2016 alone we supported over 200 unemployed individuals to break down barriers to employment and improve their skills, confidence and experience to make them more work-ready. Our aim for 2017 is even higher. We think that’s pretty awesome!
