Join our traineeship open day

Join the traineeship open day for 16-25 year olds to get into education or employment.

Are you 16-25 years old??

Are you currently not in education, training or full-time employment?

The Palace for Life Traineeship Programme could help you get back into education or employment.

If you are a young adult looking for work or education, the Palace for Life Traineeship Programme could be for you.

The programme addresses youth unemployment in south London, as we engage young people in a variety of innovative ways to help create a path into employment and further training.

By taking part in the Traineeship you will receive a qualification in ‘Employability and Personal and Social Development’. You will also take part in workshops and develop knowledge in employability, presentation skills, leadership skills, teamwork, money management and social action.

Anyone who takes part in the Traineeship will receive personal mentoring and support throughout the course and the chance to gain accredited qualifications in fields that interest them.

Pathways you can go into from the Traineeship include:

  • Construction (including CSCS)
  • Hospitality and Stewarding
  • Schools Jobs
  • Sports Coaching
  • Sports Development

The course will run 2.5 days a week, currently based online but we aim for it to be based in Selhurst Park when restrictions allow.

If you are interested in the Traineeship Programme, you can find out more and register for an open day by contacting Cigdem: education@palaceforlife.org


See what previous Traineeship participants had to say about the programme:

Yashir, 21,  is keen to become a football coach and is hoping to gain qualifications and work experience with Palace for Life. As well as making useful contacts, he has also enjoyed learning new skills in other areas.

Yashir said: “There have been loads of different things we’ve done, but one that I found most helpful was a money management course, it showed us not just how to manage our money, but also ways of making money, using social media and things.”

19-year-old Josh, explained why he had taken part: “I need to get a qualification, which is why I signed up, it’s been beneficial to me. We’ve been working towards goals and team work, ways of working together and working on our goals for our future.”
