Everyone has potential. At COPA, we’ll help you to reach your peak potential and achieve your career and learning goals.  

That’s because we’re COPA, and COPA is Welsh for peak or summit.  We like to think our name sums up what we do each and every day.

We find out what’s important to you and help your potential to grow.  Perhaps you know where you’d like your future to take you – or maybe you don’t know what to do next.  Either way, that doesn’t matter to us; we want to know what you’re interested in and what you’re passionate about. Whatever that may be, we’re here to help you to pursue your career and learning goals.

Whether you're a school leaver, a student looking to start your career or have years of experience, we’ll help you to grow and develop your skills.  We work across England and Wales, and love to help people to develop their careers.

At COPA we run a programme which could be for you.  JGW+ is designed to help you get job ready. You’ll get support tailored to help you reach your full potential. We’ll help you to find a suitable work placement, which will allow you to progress into your chosen career and could lead to an Apprenticeship!  And, you’ll earn while you learn. 

On each of the JGW+ courses, you’ll have access to mentoring, advice, training, work tasters, placements and job opportunities:

  • Work skills: This is for you if you’re struggling to decide on a career path. We’ll help you to understand your options and support you in overcoming barriers to employment.

  • Public Services: This is for anyone who sees a future in the Emergency Services. We’ll help you get ready for applying to join the emergency services. You’ll work on your fitness and gain qualifications.
  • Military Training: Interested in joining the military?  This course is for you.  You’ll get a head start on the military application process. We work closely with members of the military to give you the best possible start to a career in the military.
