Career guidance, cv help and apprenticeship advice for schools

Riverside Training’s commitment to schools has seen strong relationships develop between key individuals who are responsible for the direction and guidance of young people when choosing a suitable career or a plan for further education. At Riverside, we understand the pressures faced by school leavers and aim to provide clarity of the options on offer to them and can follow this up by later supplying quality training & apprenticeships to suit the requirements of the learner.

An Apprenticeship is an ideal route to employment – it gives you the support and development required for someone new to the world of work. On an Apprenticeship you get:

  • Help to secure a work placement
  • Real work and job role
  • Paid employment
  • Structured training
  • Support from a dedicated trainer
  • Progression onto higher level qualifications

If you feel you are not ready for a full time job, you could try a Traineeship, a period of work experience with training to help you secure a full time position

Mock interviews are a great way for us to be able to support and facilitate young people and Riverside Training attend a number of these at various different schools and colleges across Herefordshire. We can also be found at many of the various career events, apprenticeship talks, drop in sessions and have strong links with school career advisors which enables us to support learners on an individual basis.
