WorkingRite is the practical pathway to a job or apprenticeship. We help young people get their foot in the door, regardless of their academic background or previous experience. 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. We recruit local businesses keen to take a young person under their wing to ‘earn while they learn’. Each trainee has their own mentor chosen from the workforce of that business to pass on what they know.
