"Supporting people to become more employable through education, training and experience of work”
Watch our case study videos below to see how we are making
a real difference...
Grow Enterprise Wales (GrEW) is an innovative, commercially-driven Social Enterprise, operating primarily in Rhondda Cynon Taf and surrounding boroughs. Our aim is to improve the lives and prospects of people living in local communities by aiding and guiding them in their personal training and development. By utilising education and employment programmes, GrEW has become a leading learning provider, recognised across the country for its award.
We offer experience and qualifications in commercial environments to provide a more relevant and enriched learning experience. The hard work and dedication of our staff has taken GrEW from operating small projects to a thriving and successful enterprise.
This is only the beginning. As we grow and our business expands, there will be plenty of opportunities to help even more people on their journey to success.
Since Grow Enterprise Wales (GrEW) began operating in January 2010, we have offered local unemployed people (mainly aged 18-24) the opportunity to gain real work experience and work-based qualifications. Sourcing our trainees through the Future Job Fund programme, GrEW was designed as a trading subsidiary of Meadow Prospect – the charitable arm of RCT Homes. During its early stages GrEW trained over 400 young people, across a twelve month period. This led to achieving a 42%. Re-employment rate – the highest employment outcome in the region. After this, GrEW undertook property maintenance work that involved working void contracts for RCT Homes; cleaning and decorating properties.
We expanded our business in the summer of 2011, as we acquired a new premise in
Gellihirion Industrial estate. This has helped us to develop further projects and provision opportunities involving Young Wales. Overall, all of these steps have helped us to rapidly become the leading provider we see today.
