Our programme is designed for young people aged 18 to 24 year olds who are not in education, employment or training. You’ll learn skills that’ll help you get a job and experience what it’s like in a real workplace. After graduating we’ll help you find a job with us or another employer, or get into further training.
Work Ready Placements are for 18 -24 year olds that are not currently in employment education or training. If you are currently enrolled in school, college or university, or guaranteed a place to begin a course next term they are not eligible for this programme. If you have a conditional offer or are not sure what your plans are then we welcome registrations and ask to note this information in the questions box.
