We help 16-19 year olds who need support into sustained employment, apprenticeships or purposeful learning.
We do this through individually matched work placements with local employers.
What We Do
WorkingRite helps young people get their foot in the door. We believe not everything can be simulated in a classroom or rehearsed in tests. Many important skills can only be learnt working side-by-side with an experienced adult – on the job, where it counts.
We therefore individually match young people to local businesses for work placements lasting up to six months. Our trainees learn in a proper workplace, receive one-to-one mentoring, earn a weekly allowance and are given the chance to prove themselves in the real world of work.
