We care about the quality of your training and career support.

Helping you into early careers

We work with some great employers such as Tesco, Co-op, Wates and Busaba delivering:

  • Traineeships (pre-apprenticeships) for 16-24 year olds
  • Apprenticeships for anyone aged 16+
  • Short courses for anyone aged 16+

These span a number of sectors from construction and education to retail and marketing.

We are an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ national training provider delivering training and education to support you to develop, or progress, in your career.

Let’s talk about TRAINEESHIPS

Traineeships provide you with transferable skills suitable for any sector and provide valuable experience that employers are looking for that will smarten up your CV and help you progress.

These include:

  • Work and employability skills
  • Support with English and maths
  • Key skills such as teamwork, communication, timekeeping
  • Support with mental health and wellbeing
  • Guidance on CV writing and interview techniques

Traineeships provide a hands-on work experience placement and we support you with a weekly bursary of £40.00 to cover costs – this doesn’t affect your benefits.


What do our people say?

"Excellent, excellent, excellent! I really enjoyed learning about the importance of safeguarding in the workplace. I enjoyed my placement and made friends in my tutor group - my tutor was excellent."

"I didn't have one specific mentor as everyone was so helpful. The salon didn't have a problem with my pregnancy, and they have offered me a position after I have the baby. I found learning about personal finances really useful."

Rachel | Completed a traineeship in hair and beauty and progressed into employment

"I’ll take every opportunity I can get. After the Legacy Project, all of us had a lot more experience and a lot more confidence. We proved to other people that we can all learn."

“The course was not what I expected, but better as I wasn’t treated like I was at school and like an adult – and the work was more what I understood and what I needed to move into work or progress. I have grown more confident in speaking to people, I have enjoyed completing behaviour at work I have got more skills in communication and more work skills. Naz has really helped.”

Billy, Traineeship

“Thank you Naz you have really helped me – more than any of my teachers.”

Owen, Traineeship

“I just want to say a massive thank you on helping me get to where I am now in my new job – you have really taught me how to gain my confidence and to step out of my comfort zone to try and apply for new things I’ve enjoyed every moment that I had with Ixion and learned so many things while I was there, so much time and guidance went into helping me find my job and I wouldn’t of known what I would do if it wasn’t for all the help you gave me so thank you.”

Zoe, Traineeship
