Rathbone Training Programmes for 16-18 Year Olds

Rathbone Training offer study programmes individually tailored to every young person (16-18, but up to 24 with an EHC Plan) we support.

Rathbone Training offer study programmes individually tailored to every young person (16-18, but up to 24 with an EHC Plan) we support.

We are able to do this because our centres are relatively small – which is also why we are able to work successfully with learners who have not progressed well at larger institutions. These employability programmes, which include maths and English, are linked with work experience in workplaces relevant to the learner’s vocational interest.

Rathbone underpin delivery with robust ‘wrap-around’ advice and support to enable prevention; engagement; development and progression opportunities to take place. Learners on our programmes normally attend a centre three days per week and then attend work placement for the remaining two days. 

We also offer apprenticeships for those aged 16-23 in the Midlands in the following areas (Health & Social Care, Childcare, Business Administration, Youth Work and Supported Teaching and Learning). Learners undertaking an apprenticeship with Rathbone will be on Programme for 12 to 24 months dependent on the qualification and level.

To refer a young person, please contact Dorothy Thompson, Programme Coordinator, on 07428 701524 or at dorothy.thompson@rathboneuk.org. We offer a next working day interview for all young people interested in enrolling on our programmes.
