Reach out and grasp your future by doing a pre-apprenticeship.

Pre-apprenticeships are a stepping stone which offer the support and training you need to enable you to fulfil your potential. They’re designed to place you in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or other job opportunity.

Learners will gain the necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to successfully gain employment and progress onto an apprenticeship and taking another step up the career ladder.

Am I eligible for a pre-apprenticeship?

A pre-apprenticeship is suitable for a young person that wants to develop the skills and build up some experience which will help them get a job or progress on to an apprenticeship. It’s suitable for you if:

  • You’re aged 16-24.
  • You’ve not yet gained a full Level 3 qualification or higher.
  • You’re not currently in a job (or work less than 16 hours per week) and don’t have much work experience, but are focused on getting work.
  • You’re not currently in full time education.
What is a pre-apprenticeship?

It’s education and training combined with some work experience.

Pre-apprenticeships focus on giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking, with specialist support around Employability Support, English and Maths, for those that need it – combined with a quality work experience placement.

They are available for young people age 16-24 years who may just not be quite ready to enter the world of work, due a lack of experience of the need to improve their English and Maths skills, communication or confidence.

What learners say


"To be honest I couldn’t quote how much you have helped me and I couldn’t thank you enough as the position I'm in is all down to your support and great work. I enjoyed working with you for the short period of time that I did. You helped me to gain confidence, not just in myself but enough to go in to a completely new workplace and start an apprenticeship! When I first came to YH Training I'd just finished my last year at secondary school and didn’t think I'd get anywhere. With your help I'm now on my second month of my customer service apprenticeship at Yorkshire Coast Homes and could not be happier with the position I'm in - earning whilst learning! You provided an excellent service with tonnes of great guidance, tips and help! I am now working towards my level 2 NVQ in Customer Services and it has really helped change my life around! I would 100% recommend an apprenticeship/pre-apprenticeship to anyone who is wanting to progress"
