The college courses operate a roll on-roll off enrolment, so you can join anytime as long as you are aged 16 – 18, have just left school and are unemployed and not in formal training or education.
Once on a course in Wales, you could receive £30 - £50 a week, including holidays.
How do I sign up?
You will need to fill in our APPLICATION FORM, a member of our team will be in contact with you (by phone or email). You must also visit your local CAREERS WALES advisor. You will be given a referral form by the advisor and you require this before you can start with us. You must also have your National Insurance number as you cannot start a course with MPCT without it.
How much do I have to pay for the course?
The training is free, due to the course being partly funded by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government.
What if I can’t afford to buy the kit?
All Learners will receive a training allowance between £30 - £50 to assist with any costs.
I need to travel on Public Transport, I’m not sure if I can afford it?
All learners are entitled to money to offset the cost of daily travel. You can claim back up to 90% of your travel costs.
Do I need a bank account?
Yes, for the training allowance and any travel assistance to be paid directly to you.
What do I need to bring on my first day?
The most important thing you need is your National Insurance number as you will not be able to start without it. Don’t forget you will also need to bring a copy of or the original evidence of your date of birth, your current home address and that you have the right to live and work in the UK. Check out our checklist to make sure you have everything ready.
Will my parents lose their Child Benefit for me when I start the course?
No. Our courses are approved by Government and therefore have no impact on Child Benefit because your child is under 20 and in full time education. Click here for more information.
