Estates Service Praised for Training Young People

NHS Forth Valley’s Estates Services Team, based at Stirling Community Hospital, have been recognised for the excellent training they have provided to local unemployed young people.

The team, led by Conrad Binnie, were nominated for the Training Provider of the Year category at the council’s annual Backing Falkirk’s Future Awards. Of the eight trainees they mentored on a 40 week work experience placement, seven moved into full time employment. The placements covered various trades, such as engineering, joinery and plumbing, among others.
