Covid-19 stopped everything in its tracks, including young people’s learning.

At City Gateway we are seeing a 338% increase in demand for our Traineeship course from 16-18 year old young people who are coming out of school without the employability skills or English and maths GCSE grades they need.

We can give them these essential skills but demand is far outstripping the funding we have available to do this.

We need your help to ensure the workforce of the future is not held back because of the pandemic.

Please make a donation today to help us deliver traineeships to all young people who need them.
