Hear what our graduates are saying


“If I think back to a year from today, now I’m a completely different person. I never thought I’d be in this field or growing this much in my career. If I hadn’t been through the Generation program, I’d probably still be a curbside shopper. This is all thanks to Generation.”


“Generation means a lot to me. Through Generation, I was able to grow personally and gain a better perspective and appreciation for others, their culture(s) and differences of opinions. Generation has helped instill an unexplainable inner strength within myself.”


“I probably was headed nowhere before I got in the program. I have grown a lot since this program. This changed my whole attitude and perspective. Had I not come to this program, I don’t know where I would be right now.”


“Generation is for those second chances or those extra chances, for those who didn’t get a great start and who thought that there was nothing left. It’s for someone who knows there’s more. Or doesn’t see the light that everyone else sees. That was me. I didn’t see what everyone saw. Everyone else saw this girl who can do great things.”


“Generation is for anybody who wants to go further in life and build something. They brought things out of me that I didn’t even know was there. Now I’m excited about going to work. I have more confidence, and I’m happier than ever.”


“The program was absolutely life-changing! I would highly recommend Generation to others.”

How do I apply for a program?

Navigate to the program page for your desired career, have a read through and make sure this is the program for you. Once you are sure this is the right path to take, select the “Apply Now” button. If there is an option to register your interest instead of to apply, this means that applications for that program are not currently open. If you register your interest for a program you will be the first to know when applications in your area do open via email.

I’m not sure which program I should apply to. Can I apply to more than one program?

We understand that there are a variety of programs to choose from, we always recommend that you research into each profession as well as reviewing the information on our program pages, so you can be sure of the career path you want to take. We are unable to consider individuals for more than one program so it is always best to choose the program you are most interested in. Should you be unsuccessful in securing a place on your chosen program, you can try again for the same program or a different one providing you meet the eligibility criteria and are not a previous Generation learner.

Am I guaranteed a place on the program once I have applied?

There are limited spaces available on each program and therefore we cannot guarantee you a place on a program after you apply. To put yourself in the best position make sure you complete your application in a timely manner and show your enthusiasm for your chosen profession.

How much does the program cost?

Our programs are free for all learners as they are funded by our incredible partners.
