This month work will begin on the old Pontymoile Primary School site (closed down in 2014) to develop 39 new homes. Twenty-eight of them will be available for rent and 11 of them be offered for sale through Torfaen’s low cost home ownership scheme Help2Own.
Sennybridge Ltd our contractor have teamed up with our That Works Training Academy to help create four full-time jobs and six work placements at the site as we want to make sure the construction will also help unemployed residents with paid work or on-the-job experience throughout the 18-month project.
Last year (2015/16) 75 out of 128 people who completed a job training course with Bron Afon went on to find a paid job.
