Our apprenticeship programme is funded by the Big Lottery Reaching Communities fund and aims to give young people, aged 18-24, the chance to get into Youth Work by spending nine months training and working with us at the centre.
Each apprentice has a full time programme of face-to-face youth work, administration and planning tasks, as well as a weekly study programme towards their Level 3 Diploma in Youth Work. Our apprentices are an essential part of the team at Salmon. In the past year, we have worked with seven apprentices who have all made their mark on us and the young people by sharing their individual talents and passions – from bike maintenance to football, cooking to drama, and much more.
All of the apprentices leave Salmon with additional qualifications and accreditations that suit their skillset, such as AQAs in bike maintenance or gym instruction, as well as improved confidence and practical skills they can use in the world of work.
