Project description

Groundwork is currently running a Green Skills project at Cowslip Meadow - an employment and skills project - thanks to funding from London Luton Airport Limited. 

 The six week course comprises of both practical work, giving valuable work experience, and the opportunity to gain qualifications. The practical work will take place at Cowslip Meadow, on New Bedford Road. Participants will improve community access to the site by adding a kissing gate, a pathway and improving the aesthetics of the existing walkway.

Participants will also receive training in employability skills and work towards a City & Guilds level one in Employability, which demonstrates work readiness to potential employers. Training will also be given to gain a CSCS card (a leading health and safety certificate within the construction industry) and an opportunity to take the exam.

The project begins 14 January 2019 and runs for six weeks.
