From January 2018 Fleetwood Town FC Community Trust will be running a new twelve week Traineeship Programme for 16-18 year olds who need support to get back into education, training or employment; alongside short adult courses for anyone 19+ who is unemployed (all free qualifications).

Kick Start Your Career has been running since September 2016 and has worked with 34 young people aged 16-23 with some really positive outcomes in moving forward and personal development:

  • 26 completed qualifications in Employability and Personal Development, Maths and English at a higher level
  • 29 gained work experience and references
  • 17 have gone into part-time or full-time employment
  • 2 have gone into Further Education

All have reported an improvement in mental health, confidence and motivation: “This has been a lifeline for me to sort a lot of issues out, get help and get back into work”

We have also been delivering Level 2 Certificates in Customer Service and Team Leading which have given young people the opportunity of gaining two additional GCSEs as well as Maths and English.

From January 2018, Fleetwood Town FC Community Trust will be running a new Traineeship Programme just for 16-18 year olds which will provide them with a BTEC Level 2 in Work Skills, Maths and English and work experience.

Adult short courses (1 week) start on March 12th for L2 Customer Service and Team Leading Principles.
