Train at a Business

The right mix of training and experience

If you'd like to work in catering, warehousing or horticulture, our businesses offer you the opportunity to learn on the job. Sign up for a training placement in our cafes, garden centre or mailing business and you'll get practical experience and qualifications to help kick start your career.

A typical training programme lasts for two years but we can work with you to design a programme that's right for you. You can also choose how many days a week you'd like to train. Whatever you need, we can work around you.


Get qualified to work

A placement in one of our businesses will give you NVQs and other qualifications. You'll get as much support as you need to complete your training programme and you'll get your own keyworker. Our training programmes will help you to get qualifications that employers like to see such as:

  • NVQs
  • CIEH Level 1 Award in Food Safety Awareness in Catering
  • Health & Safety at Work Certificate

You will also be able to take other short courses including:

  • Manual handling
  • Fire safety
  • Basic First Aid

Learning about work life

On the job training will teach you important skills for work. You'll learn about working in a team, how to deal with customers and how to present yourself at work. You will make new relationships with other people in the business and will learn about the responsibilities you will have if you decide to get a paid job after your training.


Tracking your progress

All the way through your training, we will track your progress using our Qualified to Work pack and will help you plan what you want to do next. Towards the end of your training you will get support from a Camden Society Employment Advisor to think about getting a job or moving on to further training.
