Empowering individuals from Inside Connections to change their lives
Our Trinity colleagues based in The West Midlands on our contract for Cadent Gas in partnership with Enzen Global have proudly introduced their first batch of trainees to the workforce from Inside Connections.
Inside Connections provide support and opportunities to those in or exiting custody, care or the armed forces, including young people, long-time unemployed and those seeking a positive intervention. Forming in 2017, they aim to provide wrap-around services and support to training leading and sustainable employment as a way to empower individuals and change their lives.
Our nine trainees met Craig Silcock and Richard King from Trinity late in May to introduce themselves and talk about their employment. Since, nine trainees have successfully completed a 12 week training course and have started working on site.
Our team at Trinity are also supporting a funded training programme for Gas service layer and main layer operatives in collaboration with Inside Connections and FulPass. This is a developed bespoke C&G accredited course Diploma in Network Construction Operative (Gas) to enable accreditation and experience in 12 week programme.
Our team in Wolverhampton have been utilising the funding support we received via our IC partner TSC to cover the cost of the 4 week course, giving us the valuable opportunity to demonstrate social value
We look forward to expanding this initiative to further support the increase of new resources into the industry over the rest of the year.
