Cynon Valley MP Beth Winter visited ACT Training’s new facilities in Aberdare’s Canon Street yesterday.
ACT says Ms Winter took a tour of the accessible centre, spent time with both staff and learners, and heard how all learners are offered a pathway to employment or further study.
Beth Winter MP said: “It was lovely to spend some time in the brilliant new ACT training centre in Aberdare.
“It’s vital we have a variety of opportunities and skills pathways for young people in our communities and I came away feeling inspired by the passion of staff and the enthusiasm of learners.”
ACT was previously located in Victoria Square but they say the new Canon Street centre offers a bigger space for learners, in a more prominent location, with the capacity for up to 100 learners. In Aberdare, ACT offers support and training opportunities to 16–18-year-olds looking to join the world of work. Learners can complete a traineeship in hairdressing, childcare, business services and more. They are also given advice and guidance on writing CVs, interview techniques and other tips to land their dream job.
