The Foundation Learning Programme forms one of the progression routes for young people onto an Apprenticeship. Or young people can start an Apprenticeship if they have achieved credits / experience from previous qualifications or jobs.
An Apprenticeship with RAISE means that you will receive one to one mentoring, coaching and training. We provide training facilities through our training centre, work in the community and through employers in the area. Our expert staff and volunteers will help you to achieve great results.
We will offer Apprenticeships in: Business, Construction, Electrical Engineering, and Landscaping and Gardening and recruit for community projects and a variety of companies in the region.
We will help young people realise their potential and achieve great results through the growth of a healthy community interest company, which is inspired by visionary leadership, shared values and goals, thriving on innovation and challenge.
