Employment Opportunities Workstream

The Employment Opportunities workstream includes projects that are aimed at enabling local people to develop work skills and employment

Our Leap of Faith Assumption is that if Create on the Square provides employment opportunities, local people will use their talents to grow Create on the Square, and, in the process, will develop skills and experience to enable them to gain long-term employment appropriate to their potential
