YOUNG people in Droitwich who are not in education, employment or training, have the opportunity to get some free training and work experience as part of a traineeship scheme being organised by Droitwich Council for Voluntary Service.

The service has received funding to offer young people aged 16-18 a place on the scheme, which will provide them with qualifications in everything from retail and hospitality skills, to agriculture and estate maintenance, and sports coaching.

The traineeships will give people a mixture of valuable qualifications, work skills, and experience, with a range of work experience placements on offer.

To find out more about the traineeship programme, contact the Droitwich Council for Voluntary Service on 01905 779115 or write to

Alternatively people interested in joining the scheme, are welcome to pop into the Old Library Centre on Omberlsy Street East, and have a chat with any of the staff.
