Businesses invited to find out more about training and skills
projects being sponsored by CPR Regeneration
Businesses from Camborne, Pool and Redruth are being invited
to find out more about two new projects that can help them
address skills and recruitment issues in the workplace.
CPR Regeneration, the urban regeneration company for Camborne,
Pool and Redruth, will be hosting a business breakfast next
month to promote the work of CPR Works and CPR Skills projects.
Launched in April, CPR Works aims to help local businesses
experiencing recruitment difficulties or skills gaps by offering
training and supported employment for jobless people living
in targeted wards in the area.
CPR Skills, which started last month, focuses on providing
tailor-made staff development plans for businesses. It can
also offer investment for staff training, again aimed at plugging
skills gaps in local companies and developing the skills and
capabilities of local businesses.
Hylda Mounsey, project manager at CPR Works, said: "CPR
Works and CPR Skills are designed to complement each other
by helping local businesses address their skills, training
and recruitment needs and to ensure that local people, especially
those on benefits, are able to access new jobs being created
through the regeneration of Camborne, Pool and Redruth. We
are currently writing to businesses in the area inviting them
to attend the breakfast event, where they will be able to
find out what both projects have to offer."
Among those attending the business breakfast will be Sue
Hook, human resources manager for the Rowe Group which includes
property development, construction and computer systems among
its business interests.
Sue said: "As a long-established family business based
in Redruth, we want to ensure that we continue to play an
important role in the local community by employing local people
wherever possible. Because we are a diverse group we have
a range of training and recruitment needs. We are looking
forward to working with CPR Works and CPR Skills to make sure
that we have the right people for the right jobs and give
them the necessary training to fulfil their potential and
meet our business goals."
Nigel Tipple, chief executive of CPR Regeneration, which
hosts CPR Works and CPR Skills at its offices in Pool, said:
"These projects are centrally about investing in the development
of local people and businesses. They will ensure that where
job opportunities arise, local people, particularly those
currently out of the labour market, are best placed to take
up those opportunities which are resulting from our growing
