A social enterprise aimed at educating teenagers in preparation for employment has received City & Guilds accreditation.

Futureworks NY, based in Westborough, was set up January this year by trainers Michelle Padron and Sarah Thornton.

Now the duo have received accreditation for their courses.

They said: “We are very pleased that Futureworks is now a City & Guilds accredited centre, which means we are now delivering accredited Functional Maths, English and Employability qualifications from Entry level 1 up to level 2.

“The employability qualification aims to give learners skills they can use to help with their job search. Having nationally recognised qualifications can help progression into the the job market or into further education and also gives our learners the confidence to go on and achieve more.”
