Trade union offers a learning journey to the local community

9th October 2018

“This is what learning is all about…”

Community’s workplace training and development organisation, Communitas, recently attended Sheffield careers fair with an aim to offer learning and upskilling opportunities to local residents.

Working alongside Community’s Apprentice organiser for the North of England, Communitas were able to assist nearly 100 individuals with Maths, English & IT, CV building and interview skills.


Communitas stall included learning tools that were able to support people looking for work on site.


Speaking after the jobs fair, Communitas Project Officer Rhiannon Ball said “Working in partnership with Community, we were able to really make a difference to a lot of people in a short space of time.

“This is what learning is all about, speaking to people on the ground, listening to the obstacles they face and finding practical solutions. People don’t want handouts, just the opportunity to succeed.”

Community members have access to a range of tools to help them on their learning journey. If you want us in your corner, you can join Community by clicking here.
