Groundwork has been commissioned by The Firethorn Trust, to deliver an innovative green skills training programme to unemployed adults aged 25 years plus from Barnsley. The programme will run for 6 sessions, commencing Tuesday 6th September 2022. It is totally free to participants and the value of the training is around £800 each.


Learners will gain a range of nationally recognised qualifications with an option to gain Horticultural level1 and a CSCS card.

They will pay for public transport costs to site and will provide each learner with a £5 lunch voucher for the days on site.


On completion of the course each learner will also receive a £50 Tesco voucher.

Learners will need to get themselves to and from site on time, we will be working in community settings in Barnsley. Their working day will be 9 am – 3 pm with 30 minutes for lunch.
