Often, enrolling within a programme is the right way forward for a young person. However, if they’ve already left school, accessing a training programme of this nature can be challenging. Alexander’s Community Development believe all young people deserve the opportunity to access a programme which can help them successfully gain employment within the trades industry.
We work with organisations to deliver a bespoke programme for individuals, so we can help bridge the skills gap for young people. Our hands-on training will give young people the opportunity to take their knowledge and learn how to carry it through into on site projects. Through a mix of classroom and on-site training, Alexander’s Community Development will support the development of relevant construction industry skills.
A transitional programme for young people, Transition to Trade is delivered five 5 times per year, to a maximum of twelve young people per cohort, this Programme will provide the opportunity to learn in a real life work environment, experiencing the realities of working life over a six week period.
Following on from the six week programme, the young people will be directed onto work experience placements and/or additional qualifications, that will support their future career goals.
