Jed workshops for jobless youngsters

The Co-operative Food is staging a series of skills workshops in Jedburgh as part of a campaign to tackle youth unemployment.

It is joining in the industry-wide ‘Feeding Britain’s Future – Skills for Work Month’ and is providing 12 Borderers aged 16 to 24 with training in the skills they need to secure jobs, such as creating a CV and interview techniques, and teaching them more about the careers available in food retail.
