CWP CEO Steve Egan said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to put into practice skills people may have learned in the classroom. It is open to any person aged 18+ who has recently completed an education programme.
“We recognise that given the current Covid situation people have a lot of concerns around travel. However, travel to Spain is permitted and any tests that are required will be covered through the grant. We will be holding an information day on Thursday 12 August at 11am at the CWP centre where we will be able to answer any questions people may have.”
