YMCA Training – Study and Summer Programmes

Posted on 14th August, 2017 by Lincoln Against Poverty

YMCA Training is a 16-18 and 18+ provision offering study programmes and traineeships.

Study Programme

YMCA Training’s aim is to support learners in gaining English and Maths qualifications, either GCSE or Functional Skills, which they may not have achieved whilst at school for a number of different reasons. As part of the study programme learners also undertake work placements in the sector they choose, together with study vocational qualifications such as;.

  • Health and Social Care
  • Childcare
  • Customer Services
  • Business Administration
  • Warehousing and Storage

YMCA Training’s aim is to develop learners so they are ready for the next steps, with many learners progressing into employment, traineeships or apprenticeships, whilst others move on to college having achieved the grades they needed for their desired course. The learners also receive a bursary to attend the programme.

Summer programme

This summer YMCA Training will be running a summer programme for young adults, who have left school or college and are unsure of their next steps.

Some learners will return to sixth form and college, others in to work, however, some will continue with YMCA Training. Those that continue with YMCA Training will move on to the study programme or traineeships where they will be supported further with their desired path. The study programme will take place on the following dates and times:

  • Tuesday 15th August 2017
  • Thursday 17th August 2017
  • Tuesday 22nd August 2017
  • Thursday 24th August 2017

The summer programme will take place at YMCA Training Lincoln, 35 Spring Hill, Spring Hill, Lincoln, LN1 1HB.
