We are very happy to announce a £10,000 cash boost from our partners GMB who have provided us with new computers/software for our public room and classrooms. They are also providing much needed ICT support from A&D ICT. As many regulars here know, funding is increasingly now hard to come by. The contribution comes from GMB through the Union Learning Fund and a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on the 24th June at 2pm. Feel free to come along, refreshments will be flowing! It will be attended by GMB secretary Jim Roache and Wentworth & Dearne MP John Healey.
We look forward to putting these machines to good use, helping the people of Thurnscoe, Goldthorpe and surrounding areas with ICT, Maths, English, employability skills and other courses.
A write up of the event is featured on GMB’s website. Take a look here:
