Plan your own training

How it works

When you contact Training for Success, we'll refer you to a Careers Advisor who will help you decide the right training and the best provider in your area to meet your needs and ambitions.

Once you are matched to a Training Organisation, they will help you to develop your individual goals and your Personal Training Plan.

The next level - Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships work in two ways: helping you find a career that will interest you; then giving you the skills you need to look for, find and keep a job in that career.

As an apprentice you'll be with an employer from day one and you will be in paid employment in areas such as Information Technology, Engineering, Catering, Construction, Agriculture, Hairdressing, Joinery, Plumbing and much more. You will also follow a training framework designed to help you get training and qualifications that employers want.
