Still enrolling, book your place today…

If you are aged 16-19 years and want to continue studying outside of a traditional school environment, then a Study Programme or pre-Apprenticeship Programme may be the answer.

A Study Programme is a step towards a Traineeship or Apprenticeship. Typically, your Study Programme will be made up of:

  • A substantial or ‘core’ programme of learning
  • Study of maths and English (where GCSE at Grade C or Grade 4 (new grading) has not already been achieved – these are skills highly sought-after by employers
  • Work experience
  • Enrichment activities, to improve skills, knowledge and behaviours that prepare you for the general world of work and support personal progression.
  • A programme that will generally last 12 months

Essentially, the programme is designed to allow you time to gain in confidence and maturity before making the next big step toward your future career choice.

Apprentice Case Study

Natasha, Gaytime Day Nursery

I joined JACE Training on a study programme when I was 15. I still attended school on a Thursday and Friday but came to JACE for the other three days. At school the teachers organise everything for you so when I first started my study programme I found it quite hard to juggle study and be at my work placement, but my tutor Rebecca and my assessor Natalie were a huge help and supported me all the way through. I am dyslexic, and Rebecca always gave me extra support and time to complete my work. I was based at nursery for part of the week and being treated as an adult and as one of the team made me grow up.

I always knew I wanted to work with children and being at nursery made me realise I love working with the babies in particular. While on my study programme, I completed my Maths and English Functional Skills and gained my Level 1 Childcare qualification. I was then offered a place at Gaytime Day Nursery as an apprentice and am very close to completing my Level 2 Childcare qualification. I am very glad I did a study programme as it gave me time to grow in confidence and now, at 18, has led to my apprenticeship and a career in childcare that I love.
