What we offer

Pre-apprenticeship Study Programmes

Aged 16 to 18? If you want to progress onto an apprenticeship but don’t feel quite ready, then a pre-apprenticeship (Study Programme) could be the ideal option for you - you’ll gain hands-on experience that employers are looking for.


This option is perfect if you want to improve your confidence and skills or want to try out a particular industry or job role before starting an apprenticeship.


If you're looking for an alternative to college or university, where you can earn and learn your way into a job that suits your passion, we can help.

Work experience

Unsure about what you want to do in the future? A professional work placement can give you a taste of what you could do. Plus, it will give you valuable experience that employers are looking for.
Will I get paid on a traineeship?

You will receive a weekly training allowance of up to £40 per week and help towards your travel costs.

Who can apply for a traineeship?

To do a traineeship you have to be aged between 16 and 24 years old and cannot have a level 3 qualification. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t got any qualifications, or if you didn’t get the grades you expected from school, we’ll have a course or programme to suit you.

How do I apply for a course?

You can apply online here or you can call our friendly team on 0161 233 2656.

Where will I train?
We have 9 training centres across Greater Manchester and St Helens, meaning you won't have to travel far to study. You can see all of our training centres here.
