Aged 16-24? Full-time college study not for you - wanting to secure your next steps into employment? Looking for an apprenticeship but don’t feel ready for work?

Don’t worry. Our Pre-Apprenticeship Programme will help you develop the skills you need to build confidence for the workplace.

The free six-month programme includes help for you to:

  • Improve your personal presentation
  • Opportunity to gain real work experience to build your CV
  • Get interview ready
  • Improve your English and Maths
  • Develop your confidence.

You will spend the first few weeks in College, then the rest of your time gaining real work experience, with support from us along the way.
