LCCC Foundation pilots 'The Big Hit'
LCCC Foundation is working in partnership with Trafford College, Job Centre Plus, Trafford Council and the National Careers Service to provide local Trafford residents aged 18-25 with the relevant skills and training to support them back into the jobs market.
“The Big Hit” pre-employment programme will be piloted at Emirates Old Trafford between the 7th and 11th October 2013 and will provide participants, identified through Job Centre Plus, with a range of qualifications, skills and experience before putting them in front of real employers with real job vacancies.
Michelle Carney, Foundation Director, LCCC said “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Trafford College, Job Centre Plus, Trafford Council and the National Careers Service to pilot The Big Hit pre-employment programme. Providing skills and training opportunities for local people is a key driver for the Foundation and through this innovative programme, we will use the inspirational setting of Emirates Old Trafford to inspire, educate and engage communities through cricket.”
