Congratulations on GCSE Results Day!
Whatever grades you achieved, you made it through one of the most challenging years in education, a big well done from the TLF team!
Now it’s time to be think about your next steps, and The Learning Foundry can help you to Picture Your Future.
What can The Learning Foundry do for me?
We’re here to make talent shine, and with our courses and routes into employment, we can help you to achieve your full potential. From traineeships to apprenticeships, we work with top local employers to deliver our traineeship programmes – from the LFC Foundation to the Good Business Festival and more - and over 98% of our apprentices progress into a positive destination!
What is a traineeship?
Our Picture Your Future programmes are traineeships – free 18-week training programmes to give you the skills you will need to become an outstanding employee, with exclusive access to job vacancies and apprenticeships.
With a traineeship, you’ll study your subject and get the skill you need to work – then put those into practice with a work placement. They’re a chance to get into your dream career a different way – with on the job training! There’s travel and childcare support if needed too.
Why is it different?
Our Picture Your Future programmes are nothing like school or college. For a start, there are new ways of learning. You’ll study online, and in the workplace, alongside our top local employer partners.
With a traineeship, you’re getting started in the sector you want to work in, with a course that’s all about getting you the skills and experience that employers are looking for. Our tutors are friendly and committed to making you shine – they’re on-hand to give you support with English and Maths, and develop your CV and employability skills.
It’s not all about classroom learning and work placements though, our programmes are different. Where else could you pitch a business idea to a panel of top business leaders like our Youthquake learners, or take part in outdoor activities including canoeing and archery to develop your teamwork skills like our Picture Your Future learners? Our traineeships find new and exciting ways to give you the skills you need.
Where can I go?
All our learners get exclusive access to our job vacancies and apprenticeships! We have links to top local employers to help you move into your dream role. You could progress onto further education too, with apprenticeships and higher level qualifications.
