About MintMint Logo

Mint is a free course for young people aged 16-18 (16-24 with learning difficulties/disabilities) to support them in gaining the skills and qualifications they need to progress into apprenticeships, jobs with training or further education.  

Mint works for those young people that know what they want to do next, and equally well for those that need some help making up their mind.  These are some of the areas of work that our young people have moved in to over the last 12 months: Accounts, Administration, Animal Care, Childcare, Carpentry, Catering, Construction, Customer Service, Dentistry, Electrical Engineering, Hair & Beauty, Horticulture, IT, Leisure, Media, Motor Vehicle, Retail, Sport Coaching, Transport, Warehouse and Youth Work.

About Traineeships

Traineeships prepare young people for employment, so that they are able to progress successfully to apprenticeships and other sustainable jobs.  Work experience in Traineeships provides young people with the experience of a real workplace so that they can develop the skills, knowledge, confidence, attitudes and behaviours they need to succeed at work.

 The primary objective of a Traineeship is for young people to secure sustainable employment, an apprenticeship or a course of further learning.  Traineeships are designed to benefit young people that are within six months of being able to progress. Traineeships last for up to a maximum of 6 months and reflect the needs of the student.
