What is WorkingRite?
WorkingRite gives you the chance to get some experience and helps you to land your first real job.
We’ll offer you a placement lasting up to six months in a business that interests you – which could be anything from joinery to office admin, or landscape gardening to hairdressing. We’ll find you a great mentor in your work placement who’ll teach you on-the-job and introduce you to the world of work.
This isn’t school. There are no classrooms. You’ll be getting stuck in to proper, hands-on work experience with a local business for up to 35 hours every week.

What Our Trainees Think
And others have said:
“I enjoyed the course because I met lots of new people and gained new skills as well as experience. I also liked the responsibility and working within a team. I am very happy and proud of myself that I secured a job.”
“I think this is a great opportunity for school leavers to get into a job. You get the experience of working for 6 months and an understanding of what work life is all about.”
“WorkingRite has helped me with confidence and taught me how to be professional. If I never had it then I would be doing nothing. School was not right for me and I was constantly getting in trouble, the Pioneers programme has helped me plan towards my future.”
