Regenda launches second apprenticeship programme for NEETs

Liverpool-based housing provider Regenda Group is building on the success of its first Community Wellbeing Apprentices scheme by launching a second project for NEETs.

Fifteen young people aged 16 and 17 will be supported as they seek career opportunities, study and take part in practical projects which benefit local communities across the city. Regenda is calling on local companies to offer work placements.

Gaining work experience will be essential, so the search is on to find local companies willing to offer work placements to the apprentices.

Regenda’s project leader, Kevin Short, said: “We know from our first project that on-the-job work placements make all the difference. Employers who can offer two days a week will be opening doors and giving our apprentices priceless experience which will influence their career choices and potentially have a huge impact on their lives.”
