Find out, first-hand, what help is available from East Riding of Yorkshire Council for 16 – 19 years olds who are keen to get to work, but who need a little help to get an apprenticeship or a job. The courses we offer help young people by giving them work experience and skills, with the potential progression to an apprenticeship or job upon completion. The programme that a young person joins depends on their current skills and level of qualification. Learners may be able to apply for a bursary or help with travel costs.
All of the council’s programmes have excellent progression and past learners have gone on to a wide variety of jobs, including catering assistant, admin assistant in a solicitor’s office, army cadet, estate agent apprentice, overseas travel rep and drummer in a band.
Sara Arnold, employment education and skills group manager, said: “The council is keen to help young people living in the area, especially those who have not done so well at school.
“Our programmes can improve young people’s maths, English and ICT skills, help develop their personal skills and confidence, give them a recognised qualification at the end of the course and ultimately improve their chances of getting a job, apprenticeship or college place. Learners are given lots of individual support and will be working at their own pace.”
Young people, parents and carers are welcome.
