What is The Simon Green Training Centre?
The main objective of the training centre is to create an environment, which is both ‘real world’ and ‘pleasant’ to be in, offering a variety of interesting and challenging work. The training centre provides a business environment where high standard quality goods and services are created and purchased by customers.
The enterprise aims at developing confidence and teamwork byproviding hands on experience in all aspects of a working environment, which include finance, ordering, stock control, marketing, use of equipments (including printers and computers), customer feedback and knowledge.
Individuals have the opportunity to learn new skills and trades in activities such as picture framing, ceramics, printing (including mugs, t-shirts, coasters, jigsaw puzzles, bags, key rings and cufflinks), IT, embroidery and art/design as well as learning about health and safety in a work place.
Although Link Place is host to this new enterprise, the future aim is that the training centre develops as a social firm, so service users will have the opportunity to join the working community with income achieved through the sale of services or products.
