Working closely with the Middlesbrough community
We work within our community, establishing partnerships and helping bring the local area closer together.
Because of our partnerships, every learner has the chance to take part in valuable work experience and engage with a number of local businesses. These include: Stockton Borough Council, Tees Valley Network, Middlesbrough Council, Redcar Borough Council, Hartlepool Borough Council, Middlesbrough Hair Salon, RBC SEND Service, Middlesbrough Valeting Services, Horizon’s Trust, and Halfords.
We have a fantastic partnership with Jacob & Erik Hairdressing, giving learners valuable work experience weekly. They have also offered apprenticeships to learners beyond Nacro Education, and we look forward to working with them for the 2022-23 academic year.
Shining a light on our courses
At Nacro Middlesbrough Education Centre , we are proud to offer landscaping maintenance as part of our Work Ready Level 1 course. We have partnered with Stockton Borough Council who provide our learners with tasks around the local community, including maintaining public paths, right of ways, public servitude paths and roads, tree surgeon work, stile building and repairs, and road maintenance.
Giving our learners the benefit of learning new core skills including the use of basic tools, maintenance skills and beginners’ joinery. The biggest benefit is the work experience that our learners gain, preparing them for future education and their careers.
