Our Training for Success Programme is available to those aged 16-17 and is a fully funded programme, allowing trainees to earn whilst they learn in an area of their choice.



The programme guarantees training up to 104 weeks (156 weeks for those with a disability) to help you gain the recognised skills and qualifications to help you progress in your chosen career.

Training for Success is delivered across four strands:

Skills for your Life will help you address personal and development needs and gain skills and vocationally related qualifications you need to get a job or progress to higher level education or training.

Skills for Work Level 1 and 2 will help you gain skills and vocationally related qualifications to be able to gain employment or progress to the next level of training provision or to further education.

Skills for Work Level 3 will help you work towards the achievement of level 3 qualifications. This level is aimed at those who have gained a level 2 qualification through Training for Success, but have not yet secured paid employment and who still possess training entitlement.
