Focus On: Training Providers

There are lots of training providers offering a wide range of work-related training and qualifications, including NVQs and apprenticeships.

Some are specialists focusing on particular sectors and job roles – such as construction, business administration, childcare, or hair and beauty.

Training providers work closely with employers who offer work-based training as part of placements or employment.

We can support young people aged 16-18 who are not in education, employment or training that are seeking work-related training.

You can contact our team of advisers on 0800 707 6384 or email

Our expert advisers can:

  • Match you to local training providers
  • Provide training opportunity updates
  • Help you prepare for any interviews and assessments centres
  • Make referrals to training providers
