This service area contributes to improving the levels of aspiration and achievement of young people by facilitating and developing a range of high quality applied and vocational learning programmes, and particularly to those identified as vulnerable to disengaging from education, training or employment.
The Barking and Dagenham 14-19 Team delivers a range of programmes and services to develop young people's employability skills and support local learning providers to develop study programmes which meet the needs of all young people and employers.
The activities we deliver are:
Two week work experience opportunities for most of the borough's Year 10 or Year 11 students, and a number of Year 12 students. The Trident team delivers this service and maintains links with hundreds of employers.
Links activities in and for local schools. It arranges industrial visits, runs a mock interview programme and fosters interest with local employers to support work-related learning.
