Work Ready Extra


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 after completing the course because of the experience and qualifications they have gained in a working environment.


Traineeship


A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that unlocks the great potential of young people and prepares them for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.


Designed to help young people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the appropriate skills or experience, traineeships provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure an apprenticeship or employment.
