Work Ready Programme 

Work Ready Extra is a personalised programme to help 16-18 year olds not in full time education or employment, get the skills and experience they need to progress in their career.

Being work-ready is all about having the right skills, knowledge and attitude. The Work Ready Extra programme gives you the opportunity to gain qualifications and practical experience to put on your CV. Many of our young people gain a job during and after completing the course because of the experience they have gained in a working environment.

You will also be given a work placement lasting for a minimum of 12 weeks within the sector you eventually want to work. If you aren’t sure which career path to take, this will give you an invaluable insight into the reality of working life and help you make an informed decision about your future.

If you already have at least C grades in GCSE English and maths and can show that you are ready for work, you may be able to advance straight into a work placement.
