During their programme

Learner Support

At some time, they may have a problem that is either work related or personal, which they feel they cannot discuss with their supervisor or Career Development Adviser (CDA).  It often helps to talk it through with someone else.  If they wish to discuss their problem in confidence, they can talk to one of our dedicated learner support officers.  With their experience of dealing with personal issues, our learner support officers can help with any guidance they may need.

Once they’ve finished their programme

When they have completed their programme, we will still be here for them to make sure that they reach their full potential.  If they need any impartial information, advice or guidance to keep them on the pathway to success, we can provide a network of support to help guide them with future choices.

Financial Support

We have support available for learners who are aged 19+ and are in financial hardship that prevents them from participating in learning. This maybe for domestic emergencies, emergency accommodation or emergency childcare.

They may be also eligible for free meals, travel expenses and a bursary of up to £40 per week.


Our Training Programmes


What are our full time courses?

Our full time courses are national programmes for young people aged 16-18 who are looking for an alternative to staying at school.

Our courses not only boosts employability skills, putting young people on the right path to getting a job but it can also be the stepping stone to securing an Apprenticeship, where they can earn a real salary, gain valuable qualifications and real life work experience.

Our courses will help young people

  • Get a job by developing employability skills
  • Achieve recognised qualifications
  • Improve personal and social development skills
  • Start an Apprenticeship in one of many sectors
  • Gain ICT, Maths and English skills
  • Plus much more!

What is an Apprenticeship?

As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Off the job, usually on a day-release basis, apprentices receive training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications.

Apprenticeships can take between one and four years to complete depending on the level of Apprenticeship, the apprentices’ ability and the industry sector.

Benefits of an Apprenticeship:

  • earn a salary
  • gain real work experience
  • get paid holidays
  • receive training
  • gain qualifications.
  • learn job-specific skills.

What is ‘raising the participating age’ (RPA)?

The government has increased the age to which all young people in England must continue in education or training. This means that pupils who left year 11 in summer 2013 need to continue in education or training until at least the end of the academic year in which they turn 17. Pupils starting year 11 or below in September 2013 will need to continue until at least their 18th birthday.

Raising the participation age (RPA) does not mean young people must stay in school; they will be able to choose one of the following options:

  • A full time course or Military Preparation Programme;
  • An Apprenticeship;
  • Full-time education, such as school, college or home education;
  • Part-time education or training if they are employed, self-employed or volunteering for 20 hours or more a week.
