Work Pairing:

There are some work experience opportunities made available through Nacro. It is the Nacro in collaboration with the Council who co-ordinate Work Pairing which is where young people (who are currently not engaged in education, employment or training) can sign up to a course that allows them to gain 3 months of relevant work experience, employability skills and an allowance of £40 per week.
