SBC works in partnership with Job Centre Plus (JCP) to promote and deliver courses that are designed to support you back into work (or help you get into work for the first time). Our sector-based work academy courses are run in conjuction with supportive employers. Whilst retaining your current benefits package you will gain valuable work experience and achieve relevant work related qualifications.

SBC is one of the few training providers in Shropshire planning to offer Traineeships in 2014/15. The government has developed a new traineeships programme that will support young people to develop the skills they need to secure and succeed in employment, including apprenticeships.

Traineeships will be introduced from August 2013 for 16- to 24-year-olds (and young people with learning difficulty assessments up to academic age 25). Traineeships will fit within broader study programmes for 16- to 19-year-olds.

Employers tell us that they are concerned that young people often lack the right skills and attitudes when they apply for an apprenticeship or other employment. Yet many young people are highly motivated by work, or the prospect of it.

Traineeships will offer these young people the opportunity to undertake a substantial work placement and work skills training, alongside support to improve their English and maths. Depending on the young person’s needs, a range of other support and flexible training may be offered to help them develop their skills and progress quickly onto an apprenticeship or secure other employment.

Further details of Traineeship opportunities will be published on our courses and qualifications pages.

SBC also offers a wide range of apprenticeships. Click here to find out more.
