Welcome to Essex Youthbuild
Essex Youthbuild is a small, specialised organisation based in Chelmsford which has for more than 12 years been offering hands-on, practical training to young people aged 14-19 from all over Essex.
Young people are eligible to train with us if they meet the following:
Not in education, training or employment (NEET)
Have few or no formal qualifications
Have a history of offending or are at risk of offending
Are or have been looked after
Have not been able to get into or sustain a mainstream college place
14-16 (Key Stage 4)
Those who would benefit from a vocational element to their education, are struggling in mainstream education, are at risk of being permanently excluded and those already permanently excluded from mainstream schools.
We deliver tailored Level 1 City and Guilds’ courses in Construction Skills and Gateway Qualifications’ Awards in Employability, Numeracy, Literacy and Online IT (taught one-to-one) . We also offer other work related activities such as Health & Safety, First Aid training and, where possible, work experience.
Essex Youthbuild Trade School is a free, after-school activity for 14-16 year olds to try out a variety of trades. For more information click on the link: Summer Term Trade School Flyer
