Is it for people like me?

You get intensive training and experience in a specific sector. This could be sport, construction, logistics, cooking, customer services - or one of many more. Please check which programmes are available in your local area by clicking on the regional links on the right hand side of this page.

We choose sectors where there are many jobs available, to give you the best chance of finding a job when the course finishes. Click one of the links on the right to see what’s running in your region as new courses are being developed all the time.

What's in it for me?

  • Training from qualified professionals
  • At least one week's work experience, where possible
  • The chance to work in a team of up to 15 people
  • The opportunity to improve your teamwork and communication skills, boost your confidence, whilst also developing your interview skills and your CV at the same time
  • Help and support towards getting a job after the course is over

How much does it cost?

Nothing. We cover your travel expenses, and if you're a single parent, we will pay for your childcare during your time on the course.

What do I need to know to take the course?

Nothing. You will be taught everything during the course. There will be a taster day before the course starts - that way you can decide whether the course is for you.
