Behind the scenes

How we startedGroup of PVC students accepting their awards

  • We were set up in February 2009 to give 14-19 year olds in the Preston area a chance to train in Construction.

  • We were developed as a partnership between Preston LEAD Group, Preston City Council, Lancashire County Council, Lancashire Education Business Partnership, Preston's College and the Learning Skills Council.
