Choice Training

Free Apprenticeships for 16 – 19 Year Olds

Choice Training is a brand new and state of the art workshop facility based on Wantz Road in Dagenham. The centre is part of a larger regeneration scheme across the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and looks to help members of the local community back into the workplace. This is a great scheme helping to improve applicable trade skills and reintroduce industry to the youth of Dagenham and Rainham.

The centre offers full time apprenticeships to 16 – 19 year olds, providing personal tutors to help individuals through the course. The idea of this is for the personal tutors to help students with the transition from the course into either further education or employment.

Students 16-19: Apprenticeships are free to the student; there are no training or qualification costs.

Students 19-24: Receive 50% off of training costs.

Businesses: The cost for taking on a full time apprentice is less than £20 a day, which is paid to the apprentice. There is also a £1500.00 grant available if you have not employed an apprentice within the last year.

This is a great way to gain valuable workplace experience. Choice Training has a fully qualified team, all with full teaching qualifications and extensive industry experience.

"With over 30 years experience of working, running a business and 10 years experience teaching in the construction industry, Choice Training has the most highly regarded Lecturers in the Business. We also offer a variety of short courses, varying from special skill courses for experienced traders or for a keen DIY wanting to be able to do more at home."
