A new initiative being offered by South Gloucestershire and Stroud College will help young people enter the world of work.

The new six week traineeship will enable those aged between 16 -23 to gain work experience and qualifications at the same time, allowing progression onto an apprenticeship or into employment after completion.

Commencing on Monday 2nd December at the Filton Campus, the course currently offers routes into hospitality, administration, care and catering however the College also has a wealth of other opportunities and can consider interest and aspirations of participants in other areas or industries.

With a programme dedicated to providing qualifications in customer service, food hygiene, English, maths, health and safety and personal and social development, participants will be fully equipped to enter the workforce after. The course even provides a job coach and a brand new suit or interview outfit.

Layla Johnson, Head of Department comments: “We are really excited to be able to offer young people their first step into work. So many employers are looking for experience and this is the perfect way to get it.”
