YOUNG people can learn vital work skills with a new course.
The Pump it Up project launches at Sans Street Youth and Community Centre in Hendon, Sunderland, on January 21.
An introduction day for 16 to 18-year-olds will give young people a taste of what the course involves.
Funded by BBC Children in Need, the 20-week course will start on January 28 and runs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
