The 10th Kotuku Environmental Labour Project (KELP) course got underway last week, helping nine more candidates towards a career in the construction and waste management industries.

Every course includes a visit to Powerday so candidates can see the operations of a live Material Recycling Facility to understand how construction waste is managed giving a unique introduction and insight into environmental and sustainability issues faced by contractors on site.

The course is designed to help young unemployed Londoners into long term employment by equipping them with basic skills and qualifications, and matching them with work opportunities in construction and waste.

Powerday’s Sales & Marketing Director, Simon Little says: “The delivery of this project has so far enabled the training of over 80 candidates and find placements for more than 60 since we began. This course is particularly satisfying as it included our first delegate as a result of our relationship with the London ABA where we hope to help young people both with their sporting aspirations and their route into work based training and employment”.
