Pre-Apprenticeships in the Rail and Construction Sectors

WEP_logo West Euston Partnership will soon be launching a new pre-apprenticeship pilot project targeting 18-24 year olds. The project, funded by Network Rail, aims to offer places for up to 40 young people on training programmes to improve basic skills for entry into apprenticeship programmes in the rail and construction industries.

Up to 40 young people will get the opportunity to participate. They must be:

  • aged between 18 and 24;
  • not in training or employment at the moment; and must
  • live within one kilometre of KX Station or in the Camden wards of King’s Cross, Somers Town & St Pancras, or Caledonian Ward in Islington

Participants will get a good understanding of the broad range of careers in these sectors, engage with employers, obtain a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card and have fast tracked basic skills training.
