Dusty Forge Project Overview

Jason Trickett, from Ely, Cardiff, had been trying to build a career for some time before he entered the Construction Skills Training (CST) project at the Dusty Forge in Ely. As a youngster Jason worked as a labourer for his uncle’s business and realised that from a young age he wanted to work in the construction and building industry but did not have the qualifications to get a job in the industry. After finishing school without any real qualifications Jason was caught in a
similar situation that many young people find themselves in today, jobless and feeling a bit hopeless. That was until somebody on the local housing estate told him about the Dusty Forge and the Construction Skills Training (CST)
project running from there.
