YMCA Training is a national charity with an impressive track record in transforming the lives of young people and adults through work-related apprenticeship training and employment support. We work closely with individuals and employers throughout the UK to develop personal, vocational and work-related skills that lead to employment.
Working from our own training centres and employers' premises throughout England, we are proud to be part of Central YMCA, the world's founding YMCA, established in 1844.
Train with us
YMCA Training helps young people who are looking to develop themselves, their skills and experience to help them find employment or progress in the workplace. We provide a safe and supportive environment and only work with fully-trained practitioners.
Our programmes include Apprenticeships and National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) and we work with young people from the age of 16. YMCA Training will give you a flexible and supportive way to learn new skills and make a real difference in your life!
We have a wide range of apprenticeship and advanced apprenticeship courses which cover a varied range of employment topics including:
- business administration
- customer service
- health and social care
- motor vehicle
- children's care, learning and development
Being an apprentice offers many great opportunities. You'll meet new people, learn new skills and gain new qualifications. It means working for an employer and discovering things about yourself that you never knew before.
It doesn't matter if this is your first time working in your chosen environment, or whether you want to build on experience you already have. As an apprentice, you work closely with professionals who give you the support you need to do your job properly and progress.
Check out all of our apprenticeships that are recruiting on our current vacancies page. If you can't see a vacancy that's right for you, apply to us and we will try to match you to an employer.
