OUR MISSION

TO CHANGE LIVES THROUGH SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY APPRENTICESHIPS

Youthforce is a leading UK apprenticeship training provider dedicated to the development of skills and knowledge across the UK

We deliver accredited apprenticeship standards across multiple sectors including: business; science; IT systems and communication; and construction.

Our team of tutors combine decades of experience teaching and performing at the highest levels in their respective industries. Additionally, we provide a recruitment service to find the right candidates for each employer. We don’t see ourselves as any typical recruitment outfit. We look to marry the experience, skills, and personality of the apprentice with the individual needs of our clients. We truly believe that a happy apprentice benefits all parties involved. Our recruiters, tutors, and operations team strive to make this a reality for all our learners.

STARTING OUT

Youthforce first emerged in 2005 with a primary focus in mind: to equip young people for life. We provided in-house training for the managers, mentors, and tutors that worked with young people. We wanted to mould the professionals and volunteers that would later shape the minds of our principle beneficiaries – the youth of the UK.

WHAT HAS CHANGED?

Our original vision has not wavered since we began. We are still dedicated to equipping young people for life…we just wish to help others too – irrespective of age! Additionally, we believe apprenticeships to be the most effective way to develop the skills people need to reach their full potential.

Our work with public and private sector companies in STEM has added an additional priority for the team: provide established and emerging companies and schools with recruitment and training services to develop a world class STEM workforce. All our apprentices are rigorously screened via a myriad of ways including: telephone interviews; workshop days; workplace trial days; and face-to-face interviews.
