Study programmes

Study programmes help young people aged 16-19 years (or aged up to 25 if they have a learning difficulty or disability) to choose a career path that’s suitable for them. They’re ideal for those who have no idea what they would like to do.

Through Hoople, you can choose a study programme in:

  • Health and social care
  • Business and administration
  • Customer service
  • Childcare
  • IT users

At the same time, you can be getting the support to improve your maths, English and ICT skills and undertaking a number of ‘employability’ skills. You will also access a number of enrichment activities and skills for working life. 

For two days each week (term time only), you will be based at the Hoople Training Centre in Hereford. The remaining three days each week (again, term time only) will be spent on work placement relevant to your chosen study path. We will help you to find a work placement that suits your needs and preferences and will give you a sense of what a career in your chosen path would be like. 

More information and answers to the most common questions can be found on our frequently asked questions webpage.  For further information, please get in touch or download a copy of our application form or study programme leaflet
