What happens on the programme?

If you’re not in work, education or training and live in the UK, we can give you the chance to gain work experience and receive training in a specific sector through our Get into programme. We'll also focus on your employability skills to help you move into a job after the course. 

In order to give you the best chance of getting a job after the programme, we run courses in sectors where we know jobs are most likely to be available. 

The course is completely free and won’t affect your Jobseeker’s Allowance. We'll cover your travel costs, and may be able to support with lunch and childcare costs during the course.

Not sure if this is for you?

You can meet our staff before the course starts and ask us questions to decide if it's right for you.

During the programme, you'll also benefit from one-to-one support to help you think about what you'd like to do after the course finishes, and will have the option of support either from our staff or a volunteer mentor for up to six months.
