Skilling-up at the STC Group

This morning the team and I visited the STC Group's Harold Wood training centre to hear how they are training the local workforce in construction, decorating and tiling for upcoming housing projects. 

STC won the prestigious Havering Business of the Year Award, and they do fantastic work retraining those who are out of work or struggling to get their first break, including the over-50s who had left the construction workforce and young men and women who need practical skills.

I hope to work with STC to ensure that more local people are able to benefit from the big regeneration projects planned for the borough, and I am assisting the group in their nomination for a Mayor's Construction Academy quality mark.
