Access to Apprenticeship Programme

We are offering 15 places to help young people aged 16-24 who need an extra boost in gaining an apprenticeship placement.

Access to Apprenticeship is a two week programme, designed to help young people aged 16-24 who would like an apprenticeship, but need extra help in gaining one.
