Work Ready


Work Ready is a Welsh Government funded programme for learners 18 or over. A19 Skills deliver Work Ready in partnership with Gower College Swansea.


If you are 18 or over, are unemployed and receiving benefits from the Department for Work and Pensions, then Work Ready is a great opportunity to get you into work or onto further learning.


Your benefits will not be affected and if you are eligible, you could receive money to help pay for travel and childcare support.


All A19 Skills referrals undertake an Initial Skills Assessment to establish your individual needs. The Work Ready programme is then tailored to suit you.


There are two levels available – Learning for Work and Routeways. Routeways are short programmes that up-skill a learner in a particular industry or sector. Learning for Work has a longer journey, up to 24 weeks, giving a longer time period to progress and learn.


A19 Skills delivers Learning for Work programmes to Jobcentreplus customers in South West Wales.
