Over the last year a group of young people from Milford Haven School have been gaining valuable experience in preparation for the world of employment when they leave their education studies.
The group of pupils have achieved qualifications in hazard awareness and work experience through the Engage Project, which believes that every young person has something to offer.
The role of the project is to maximise the potential of young people who are at risk of missing out on education and job opportunities in order to improve their chances of success so that they can make a contribution to society.
The project also aims to develop young people's skills and confidence, offer support, and provide an alternative education and innovative training.
The project has been made possible by the EU's Convergence European Social Fund through the Welsh Government. The project is collaboration between Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea County Councils and local colleges across the five authorities.
Gareth Mills, Head of Learning Partnerships for Pembrokeshire County Council, said: "This is an extremely important project targeted at those young people who are in greatest danger of not making a smooth transition into training and work.
"The success of the Engage project in Pembrokeshire is testament to the hard work of the team.
"Young people are absolutely vital to the future success of Pembrokeshire and programmes like these demonstrate our commitment to the economy and employers.
"We hope to see this type of work continue to grow and have a major impact on the lives of young people in the future."
