The Skill Mill Newcastle: Partnership with Urban Green

Urban Green Newcastle is an independent charity responsible for the management and upkeep of the city’s 33 parks and 61 allotment sites. The Skill Mill Newcastle work in partnership with Urban Green, as part of a North of Tyne Community Led Local Development (CLLD) project.

The Skill Mill is currently looking for young people who would like to take part in a training scheme as part of the partnership. Trainees will be able to spend 4 weeks on the project. They’ll have opportunities for progression after their 4 weeks, achieve an AQA award, create a CV and gain invaluable practical real work experience. No previous work experience or qualifications are necessary.

The feedback about the impact of the training scheme has been outstanding:

"He mentioned again on the phone today how much he is enjoying the training scheme, I don’t think I have actually heard as much enthusiasm in his voice before so I would just like to say thank you again for your help in getting him this opportunity!"

Nick Cassidy, Newcastle United Foundation
