This new Apprenticeship and Traineeship Scheme which has been developed by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation, and is supported by Youth Options, is a unique programme offering a grant to voluntary and community groups to pay for and support a young person on an apprenticeship or traineeship placement within their organisation.
Placements must be centered around Business Administration or Customer Services. Priority will be given to those organisations who demonstrate sustainable employment.
The scheme has been extended for 2015 to include Traineeship's - a 20 week short term education and training programme with work experience that is focused on giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for.
Previous Apprenticeship placements are also now being offered second year funding to progress a young person through to an NVQ Level 3.
Any enquiries about the Apprenticeship or Traineeship placements should be directed to Youth Options on email firstname.lastname@example.org
