Youth Guarantee

Are you 16-19 years old? Youth Guarantee enables you to train fees free for up to two years in a range of practical programmes.

Complete an introductory programme at Level 1 or 2 and then choose from a wider selection of Level 3 options. Youth Guarantee can help cover your fees, course-related costs and travel. This could be ideal if you want to keep learning, but feel school is no longer right for you.

Options include:

  • Automotive
  • Construction Trades (Carpentry, Electrical, Painting and Decorating, Plumbing, Tiling)
  • Cookery
  • Hairdressing
  • Hospitality
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Tourism

Get in touch with our student advisers at Whitireia or WelTec to find out if you qualify.
