Dearne Valley College open new ‘Job Zone’

The new Job Zone initiative at Dearne Valley College has been officially opened by local MP John Healey.

The service has been created in conjunction with Job Centre Plus and will help students find out about progression opportunities, part-time work and Apprenticeships.

The MP for Wentworth and the Dearne Valley said: “Compared to the rest of the country, we have twice as many young people who have been out of work for more than a year, and in parts of the Dearne that number has tripled in the last 12 months. So the Jobs Zone will be an important and, I am sure, well-used service which will give Dearne Valley College students the best possible chance of finding work.”
