Since the Jobs Build was established in 1993, over 600 Hartlepool residents have swapped the dole queue for a job with local firms.
Initially, the scheme covered the City Challenge area where there has been major regeneration projects to breathe new life into the town centre.
Since then, however, the project has been expanded to cover other parts of the town where there is significant investment including the Owton Rossmere Partnership and North Hartlepool Partnership areas.
Mr Brown said: 'A lot of other councils are showing interest in Jobs Build and have sent representatives to the town to see how it operates.
'We have had interest from Charnwood in Leicestershire, Gateshead, Ipswich, Chester, Stirling, Kirklees and Liverpool councils who are all keen to learn from the Hartlepool experience'.
The scheme also promotes modern apprenticeship schemes and liaises closely with local businesses to keep them abreast of new initiatives and legislation which affect them.
Jim Watson, chairman of the council's economic and transportation sub-committee paid tribute to other agencies who have contributed to the success of Jobs Build.
'Jobs Build is a partnership with the business community and many other agencies and its success is largely due to the excellent working relationship between everyone involved'.
Jeremy Evans, economic development Officer with Charnwood BC said: 'We found the visit extremely useful in that it provided us with a far clearer picture of what is involved in running a construction scheme for local labour and training.
'Your model for running the schemes will form the template for the proposed Loughborough scheme'.
In the last year Jobs Build had a target to create 45 jobs in the town but actually managed to create 123.
