A Traineeship is a new training programme launched by Government to support young people moving from education onto an Apprenticeship or into employment. The programme is aimed at 16-19 year olds who are not employed and have little work experience, but are focused on gaining employment.
A Traineeship is a programme which lasts up to six months and is made up of both classroom based training and work experience. The key focus of a Traineeship is providing you with real life work experience and relevant training to prepare you for work, including training in Maths and English.
What would I gain from a Traineeship?
A Traineeship allows you to develop the skills that an employer is looking for. During your Traineeship you will gain at least six weeks work experience with an employer who will provide a formal reference on completion and will also guarantee you an interview.
During classroom based sessions you will learn important work preparation skill such as CV writing, job searching, interview techniques and inter-personal skills. In addition to this you will also gain Functional Skills qualifications in Maths and English. Following your Traineeship you will progress onto an Apprenticeship or into employment.
