YOUTH GUARANTEE SCHEME

Youth GuaranteeIf secondary school wasn’t for you, take the next step towards a career under SIT’s Youth Guarantee Scheme.

The Youth Guarantee Scheme provides a pathway from school to further study, work or training. It provides successful candidates a wider range of learning opportunities and free training and education (tuition, course materials and equipment) for one year.

SIT has a limited number of spaces available on the Youth Guarantee Scheme, and applications should be sent as early as possible before courses begin.

Note: Youth Guarantee Scheme courses may vary from year to year. Other subjects may be available dependent on funding and demand.
