Get experience with Get into
Our Get into programme for 16 to 25-year-olds can give you the experience you need to move into a job.
Last year we helped over 6,000 young people secure jobs through our Get into courses.
What happens on the programme?
If you’re not in work, education or training and live in the UK, we can give you the chance to gain work experience and receive training in a specific sector through our Get into programme. We'll also focus on your employability skills to help you move into a job after the course.
With programmes running in a number of sectors - including retail, construction, logistics and hospitality - you'll spend time training on the job and gain valuable work experience in your chosen sector.
In order to give you the best chance of getting a job after the programme, we run courses in sectors where we know jobs are most likely to be available.
The course is completely free and won’t affect your Jobseeker’s Allowance. We'll cover your travel costs, and may be able to support with lunch and childcare costs during the course.
Not sure if this is for you?
You can meet our staff before the course starts and ask us questions to decide if it's right for you.
During the programme, you'll also benefit from one-to-one support to help you think about what you'd like to do after the course finishes, and will have the option of support either from our staff or a volunteer mentor for up to six months.
Those four weeks on the course were probably the happiest moments of my life. I would've done another four just for the joy of it.
