Open Day at the Skills Centre for local training and employment opportunities

  • Date: 08/05/2021
  • Location: The Skills Centre at The Blue, Market Place, SE16

If you are unemployed, looking to retrain or to return to work following furlough, redundancy or just an extended work break, why not come along to find out about the opportunities available.

Those taking part in the training will have direct access to job opportunities at the £500million redevelopment of the former Peek Frean biscuit factory, as well as at ongoing works at Canada Water and Old Kent Road developments.

Up to 500 Bermondsey residents will be offered free construction and digital skills training with The Skills Centre in the coming months, thanks to a partnership between  the Southwark Construction Skills Centre, The Blue Bermondsey, Big Local Works and Southwark Council.
