Eagle House has been building a strong working relationship with the Job Centres in North Wales over this past two years and this year were invited to partner the Job Centre on their stand at the Royal Welsh. This has given rise to links being formed with the Princes Trust in Wales as well as the Army’s outreach arm to young people. Watch this space for further developments there.
With regards the Job Centres, we have interest from many areas in Mid and South Wales which we will be following up with meetings across October and November and , God willing, we will have new courses available in North Wales.
