Getting young people ready for the workplace

Study Programmes

Our Study Programme courses are tailored to develop the skills that your future employers are looking for. Not only do they provide excellent work experience opportunities, they also offer extra support to young people aged 16 - 18, or aged 19 - 24 with an Education Health and Care (EHC) plan.

Our varied courses aim to nurture young people, allowing you to grow at your own pace and develop the right work and life skills for a successful future.

Our programmes are designed to help you get ready for an apprenticeship or job if you need extra skills or experience. We focus on ensuring you can achieve the right job know-how foryour chosen career while gaining valuable workplace experience.

Work Experience and Careers

That is why as part of your study programme, you will take part in a minimum of 37 hoursof work experience. You will also get the opportunity to experience a range of careers through your virtual and physical work experience.

This will help you chart the pathway to your dream job, as well as giving you valuable transferable skills in a number of roles.
