There are many options available to your son or daughter once they finish school and decide to embark on a career.

Apprenticeships and traineeships are a great option for young people who want to get into the world of work. Unlike more conventional choices, like university, they will get skills, experience and qualifications on the job.

About our approach

London Skills for Growth offer a holistic approach to assessment and learning. We assess and develop soft skills; such as communication, team work and presentation in addition to qualifications. This ensures that every young person is on a programme that is best for them, giving them the opportunity to succeed and progress in to sustainable employment in the future.

We offer a range of full time education programmes as well as apprenticeships. Every young person will have an opportunity to work towards achieving Maths and English qualifications alongside their programme or apprenticeship. They will also gain valuable work experience to develop their life and employability skills.

Every programme or apprenticeship is run by dedicated specialist staff who put the young person at the centre of everything they do! Each young person will have an individual learning plan. This will incorporate all of their aspirations and address any barriers to learning or employment and is reviewed regularly.

There are financial benefits attached to each programme and young people are also entitled to free or discounted Oyster cards.
