Our full time courses are aimed at giving 16 to 18 year-olds the opportunity to develop the skills they need to find, and succeed in, employment or progress onto an Apprenticeship.

Aimed at those who are not currently in work and are not quite ready for an Apprenticeship , but are focused on getting a job, they comprise the following core elements:

  • English and maths qualifications for those who have not achieved a GCSE Grade A*-C or equivalent
  • Work preparation training focusing on areas such as CV writing, interview tips and inter-personal skills, including preparation for the working environment
  • In-depth insight into sectors of work (Dental, Administration, Engineering) or a taster of a variety of sectors for those not sure of their career path
  • A work placement to give valuable experience of working in that role (Administration and Dental traineeships only)


Our full time courses are part of the Apprenticeship family, however, there are a number of differences between the schemes. Our full time courses are delivered at our training sites and have the aim of securing young people’s progression to an Apprenticeship or sustainable job as quickly as possible. The programmes are great for those who are looking for an alternative to school, those looking for a real life experience not just classroom based or those who want to progress onto an Apprenticeship.
