JobSense scheme in in Rhondda Cynon Taff, Merthyr Tydfil, Blaenau Gwent and Caerphilly

Following the recent announcement that the JobSense employment scheme for people with sensory loss has been extended to cover West Wales and the Valleys, MTIB (Merthyr Tydfil Institute for the Blind) have provided information on how they will be operating the scheme for people in Rhondda Cynon Taff, Merthyr Tydfil, Blaenau Gwent and Caerphilly.

MTIB is keen to work alongside you in achieving your goals.

Some examples of the skills that you can be helped to develop include:

Referrals to the service can be made by organisations or the individual. For more information, please contact Laura Scott, Employment and Training Officer at MTIB: telephone 01685 370072 or Email: For more information about MTIB, visit their website.
