The YC Hertfordshire Plus One Programme

Support for young parents and parents-to-be

The YC Hertfordshire Plus One Programme supports young parents and parents-to-be and enables them to gain valuable employability skills and confidence to progress to the next stage of their lives. Topics covered are:

  • Employability
  • Healthy living
  • Parenting skills
  • Confidence building

Participants gain a City and Guilds Employability Skills qualification which will help them to progress to further education, training or employment. The Plus One programme also contains elements which help the young parents grow in confidence and cope with the new challenges of being a parent.

Who is it for?

The programme is for young mums and dads, and young mums and dads-to-be who live in Hertfordshire and are aged 14-21 (up to the age of 24 if they have learning disability).
