Welcome to Youthforce
Our mission is to ‘Equip young people for life’. We exist to transform young people’s lives. Our purpose is simple: ‘to educate, qualify and enable every young person to fulfil their potential and realise their dreams’.
Established in November 2005, we are one of the most well respected training agencies for education sector practitioner courses in the UK. We began engaging over 1000 young people who are not in employment education or training (NEET) on our accredited course ‘The Essentials of Working with Young People’. We then expanded to deliver accredited courses and qualifications for young people and practitioners within the education sector. We are currently working with over 300 schools and over 5500 young people.
We operate out of Hove Technology centre and Somerstown Community Hub in Portsmouth. Most of our training will be provided within the schools / companies that we work with, or in easily accessible venues in the local area.
We like to tailor our learning environments specific your needs. You will be assigned your own tutor (providing the training for the apprenticeship) and a mentor (assigned from your place of work) to keep you on track and help with anything you may find difficult. Sometimes you will be working in a group, sometimes 1:1 with your tutor. We strive to provide as much support as you recquire and encourage you to make the most out of your tutors time...they are superhuman after all!
Our mission statement (to 'equip young people for life') is not simply empty rhetoric. The figures back us up!
From 2015-2016: 72% of our learners stayed on with their employers after they finished their level 2 apprenticeship. 17% found work elsewhere. 5% continued on to further education.
