Study Programme is a new vocational learning and training programme for young people that focuses on:study programme High Wycombe

  • personal and social development sessions in preparation for starting a career and working in a team
  • securing a relevant work placement for every participant, alongside the completion of vocational and work-ready qualifications.

Study Programme ensures all learning content is tailored to individual needs, interests and aspirations, and all programmes are designed to complement both vocational and academic learner pathways. Through the programme young people are supported to gain the skills required to progress into apprenticeship training, employment or further education.


Programmes are usually between six to twelve months in and consist of three main components:

  • vocational learning in Health and Social Care, Childcare or Business Skills transferable across a variety of sectors.
  • personal and social development including employability skills
  • functional skills (English and maths).
  • Four to six weeks of work  experience

Young people are supported with:

  • an individual plan with realistic and achievable goals
  • the development of employability skills
  • regular one-to-one progress meetings
  • information, advice and guidance about employment, training and education options available
  • work experience
  • further qualifications

The programme will  be designed indiviudally for each learner and will be run as a full time programme, minimum of 16 hours per week.  All learners will be entitled to a weekly allowance/ bursary ( approx. £30 a week- means tested) and travel expenses as part of this programme.

TRAINEESHIPS

Traineeships prepare you for future careers by helping you become work ready. They were introduced in August 2013 for 16-24 year-olds and young people with learning difficulty assessments up to academic age 25. They provide the essential work preparation training, literacy and numeracy skills, and work experience needed to get an apprenticeship or other jobs.

How do they work?

Traineeships High Wycombe and Oxford

  • Traineeships last from six weeks to six months – with content tailored to your individual career needs.
  • Work preparation training – only 38% of unemployed young people say they feel ready for the world of work – this training gives you the skills and confidence needed for an apprenticeship or the first step in your career.
  • Skills you need to find a job – employers are at the centre of traineeships, so they focus on your skills and future success in employment.
  • Maths and English support – developing the skills you need for the workplace and boosting your job prospects, your long-term career progression and earning potential.
  • Work experience – 74% of employers say work experience is critical or significant when recruiting – plus you'll get an insight into the world of work, a useful reference and an exit interview (or even a job interview if a role becomes available).
  • An improved CV – traineeships give you great experience both practically and on paper.

Is it right for me?

Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people who are motivated to get a job or an apprenticeship, but lack the skills and experience employers are looking for.

It could be suitable if:

  • you're unemployed (or work less than 16 hours per week) and have little work experience
  • you're aged 16 to 19 and qualified below level 3 (equivalent to two A levels at grades A to C)
  • you're aged 19 to 23 and qualified below level 2 (equivalent to five GCSEs at grades A* to C)
  • you think you'll be ready for employment within six months of starting a Traineeship

It's probably not right if:

  • you already have the skills and experience needed to find an apprenticeship or work
  • you're already in a job
  • you may also want to consider a supported internship
