A NEW training centre, designed to get young people into work, has opened in Weston.

The Learning Partnership West has opened up a centre in the Boulevard which will show young people the best way of getting themselves a job.

The new facility was launched at a special open day on Friday and has IT resources and a classroom for studying.

The four-week UR Hired course, which takes place over two-and-a-half days a week, will teach young people how to write a good CV, give them interview technique tips and allow them to gain a professional qualification.

The course begins on the first Monday of each month and it is free to 16-18 year-olds who are not in education, employment or in training. Anyone travelling more than two miles can claim the travel expenses back.

The centre will also offer drop-in clinics whereby youngsters can visit professional staff for advice on any aspect of the recruitment process.
