Success at Greater Manchester Skills for Business awards
Congratulations to our Framework Partner Willmott Dixon, who have won the Skills for Business award for ‘Supporting People into Employment’.
The awards were hosted by a partnership of Greater Manchester Chamber and the Greater Manchester Learning Provider Network and recognise the direct impact learning has on businesses, individuals and communities in Greater Manchester.
The winning entry demonstrated an excellent example of a strong partnership between Willmott Dixon & The University of Manchester affiliated Construction Academy supporting those furthest away from the labour market, including the long-term unemployed, individuals in custody and ex-offenders. To date this specific scheme in Greater Manchester has supported over 30 economically inactive people into careers in the construction sector – to become active members of society and begin their careers and support their families.
