News: Brinsworth Training delivers for SOVA Ltd


Leading engineering and manufacturing training provider, Brinsworth Training has successfully delivered a pioneering engineering training programme with local charity group SOVA Ltd.

The latest group of graduates recently completed their "Entry to Engineering" course at the Templeborough company and are now looking at furthering their training.

Supporting some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in society SOVA has been working to transform lives and improve communities for more than 35 years. SOVA is the leading national voluntary organisation for recruiting, training and managing volunteer mentors to work to promote social inclusion and within the Criminal Justice System in England and Wales.

Mark Willoughby, project manager for SOVA Yorkshire and Humber Offender Partnership, which is part financed by the European Union, said: "Employment is one of the most important factors in reducing re-offending. SOVA has worked to build communities where everyone has the chance to fulfil their potential for many years and we believe that with the right support everyone can change their lives for the better.

"By working with local communities we can find long term solutions to disadvantage and crime and our partnership with Brinsworth Training allows us to be responsive to the needs of the local economy to the benefit of individuals and the whole community. We can help to fill skills gaps whilst giving people support to stay away from crime and the chance to make a fresh start."

Paul Reeves, business development director at Brinsworth Training, added: "We are delighted to be able to work with SOVA on the Entry to Engineering programme and the impact that the course has had on the learners is rewarding to see. These individuals have illustrated their desire to develop a set of skills and are now looking to further their training up to an NVQ standard in order to successfully gain employment."

The project is funded until December 2011 and the growth of SOVA over the last decade has been substantial. The organisation is determined to continue to offer its services to a wide constituency of partners in order to positively impact on local communities and assist in the reduction of crime.
