Helping young adults into construction

A group of young labourers from the Kotuku Environmental Labourer Project (KELP) have visited Taylor Woodrow’s Victoria Dock Portal project.

KELP offers young unemployed Londoners a helping hand into long term employment by equipping them with basic health, safety and environmental skills and qualifications.

Following training, the delegates are matched with full time work opportunities on the first rung of the construction and waste management industries’ employment ladder.

Connaught Tunnel’s Environmental apprentice Paul Edmonds and Victoria Dock Portal’s apprentice Jonathan Tucker are former KELP trainees.

During the visit, arranged by environmental apprentice Jon Tucker, the group benefitted from briefings on the project and a tour of the portal site.

Delighted KELP co-ordinator Patrick Smith said:

“The trainees really enjoyed themselves and the experience will benefit them greatly when sitting their CSCS tests this Friday.”
