As a training provider, we want to help combat unemployment in the UK and help individuals get back into education, employment and training. Our training helps play an important role in preparing them for the world of work with the addition of our IAG services. We offer pre-employment training in the form of a Study Programme.
You may ask: “What is a Study Programme?” To put it simply, it is a programme that provides a person with an education and training in order to help people gain the necessary skills and experience for employment, ideally towards a specific career in mind. The main goal of the Study Programme is to make the person undergoing the programme ‘work ready’ and in turn lead them into employment.
A study programme is very similar to that of a Traineeship with the difference that a Study Programme does not have work placement as its core. Otherwise, a Study Programme shares the same components as that of a Traineeship. The difference however, is that, as a Study Programme does not come with work placement as its core, you are still able to do a Traineeship or other course. You will also be eligible to undertake an apprenticeship, or start employment, whether if it is with us or another provider. The study programme will give you a chance to:
- Build your CV
- Get experience with employers that you want to work with
- Improve your English and Maths skills
- Become interview ready
You may also be given the opportunity for work placement. If the opportunity arises, you may gain a position with their employer.
To be eligible for a Traineeship, you will need to be/have:
- Aged 16-19
- Unemployed, not in education, employment or training, or have just left school
- Good standard of Maths and English
- Good communication skills
- Committed and willing to learn
- Eligible to work within the UK
The courses we have on offer are fully funded through the 16-19 Study Programme which is funded by the ESFA. The funding is available to those who meet the eligibility criteria.
