Get Ahead with New Course
Young people are being offered help to get on the right path, thanks to a new programme being offered by City of Wolverhampton College.
The Get Ahead programme aims to give 16-18 year olds not in education, employment or training, a chance to try new activities and think about their futures.
Students will be able to join in taster sessions in areas such as hospitality and catering, motor vehicle, construction, sport, hair and beauty and creative arts. They will also have the chance to take part in team building activities and other challenges such as archery, abseiling and an overnight camp, and learn employability skills.
Co-ordinator Lorna Prosser said: “We are encouraging young people to get up, get in and get on with this exciting new course which will help young people improve their career prospects with potential employers.
“The course is flexible, and students can start at any point. With a free bus pass, an NUS discount card and free lunch voucher, this new course is a great opportunity to get ahead.”
On successful completion of the programme students will be able to move on to other courses, traineeships or apprenticeships.
