Kent Training & Apprenticeships - Work Ready Extra Programme - Gravesend

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 chosen career.


There are many career areas that Work Ready Extra can help with, from plumbing to childcare and marketing to warehousing.


Being work-ready is all about having the right skills, knowledge and attitude. The Work Ready Extra programme gives learners the opportunity to gain employer recognised qualifications and practical experience to put on their CV.


The programme includes a work placement lasting for a minimum of 12 weeks within the learners’ chosen career sector. This provides an invaluable insight into the reality of working life and helps learners make an informed decision about future choices.


At the end of the programme progression opportunities include employment with training or an apprenticeship (often with the employer where the work placement has been held) or into further education or training.


Age Range:


16-18 and up to 24 with EHCP
