Skills Support for Young People

Funded through the ESF funded CSW Skills Support for Young People contract we are able to offer training courses to develop and improve the employability and vocational skills of young people aged 15 – 25 who may unemployed or be at risk of disengaging with education or employment after leaving school. They get to work towards a recognised qualification and get some experience to step onto the ladder of further study or employment…and have fun!


Developing Employability Skills Programme

Each programme includes IAG followed by tailored support of accredited training and non-accredited experiences including the BTEC WorkSkills employability qualification and a choice of other activity such as work placements, work trials and ‘have a go’ activities on business premises. The employability course is either delivered over 5 consecutive days or, for young people in education, one morning each week for 8 weeks and includes:

Managing Your Own Money

Personal Behavior for Success

Achieving Success at Interview

Applying for Jobs

Maintaining a Suitable Online Presence for Employment


Investigate Skills in the Marine Sector

As part of their school curriculum, young people aged 16 – 18 can investigate the skills marine businesses need for an able and talented future work force. During the 20 week programme, delivered one day a week on a schools premise, young people work towards a marine focussed vocational qualification, gain real work experience with a range of marine business across the sector and get some experience to step onto the ladder of further study or employment…and have fun!
