Moving On Programme

Moving On Programme

About the course

Moving On aims to improve the skills of young people so that local businesses can operate successfully and grow in Lancashire. Young people are trained in the skills needed to be productive in the workplace and you can work with the training network to develop young people for your workforce through work placements and progression into traineeships and apprenticeships.

The project aims to provide personalised and flexible packages of support appropriate to individual young people’s needs and aspirations that are informed by the opportunities available in the local labour market. This will include vocational and employability skills training as well as bespoke pre-employment or pre-apprenticeship training packages designed in response to employers’ recruitment needs. The aim is to support young people to progress into employment, apprenticeships or further training.
