What routes are available and what do they involve? On the Study Programme there are 2 routes, Employability Skills and Traineeships both available at our centres in Accrington, Oldham or Bury. Both routes include maths and English qualifications (if you don’t already have GCSE grades 4 – 9) and are full-time programmes which means parents/guardians will be entitled to child benefits. After an initial induction and assessment period, you can decide the best route for you. The Employability Skills route • Supports you to get ready for the workplace, further learning, or an Apprenticeship by developing your employment skills along with maths and English. • It is a 34 week programme with work experience from week 13 to develop your vocational skills. • You will work towards achieving a City & Guilds qualification in Employability Skills. The Traineeship route • Supports you to develop the skills for an Apprenticeship through work placements and support provided at one of our 3 centres. • It is a 24 week programme with work experience from week 3 to develop your vocational skills. • You will receive a reference from your work experience employer which you can add to your CV.
