YOUNG people from the borough have a bright future after gaining employment at a major local construction project.
The 18 new employees (pictured with leading members of the business community) will be working for Atlantic Projects Company (APC) on the construction of the new MGT Teesside renewable energy plant at Teesport.
After struggling to recruit the right talent for the construction project, APC and training company Nordic Products and Services Ltd, developed a bespoke, four-week training scheme, aimed at young people in the borough. MGT Teesside, Department of Work & Pensions and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council helped to co-fund. After the success of this training, MGT Teesside is making a further contribution to fund bespoke Shot Blasting training for another 10 young people, with all those that pass guaranteed an interview with local companies.
