Most young people want to do some kind of work in the future. For some people, work is a way of gaining independence, learning new skills, making new friends and feeling more adult. It's also a way of earning money, although not all work is paid.
There are many types of training a young person can consider.
Apprenticeships provide an opportunity to combine real work with workplace training and may be offered by various organisations.
If you would like more information about apprenticeships, traineeships or other options such as supported employment, go to our employment section, or speak to your local YC Hertfordshire team by emailing them or calling 01438 844999.
