Traineeships will begin from August 2013 and offer young people aged 16-24 the opportunity to develop the skills and workplace experience that employers want and put them in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or job.

Who are Traineeships for?

Contact us now to ask about traineeships if you are:

  • Keen to work, but need some extra help with confidence, training or work experience before applying for an apprenticeship or job
  • Aged 16-24 (or those with Learning Difficulty Assessments up to academic age 25)
  • Qualified below Level 3 (A-levels or level 3 BTECs/NVQs)

What are Traineeships?

Traineeships are fully-funded training courses that will last a maximum of six months; the exact content will depend upon what the learner and employer need, but will include:

  • Work experience
  • Employability training (including CV building, interview and communication skills, business environments, customer service etc.)
  • Work-related English and maths.

How do Traineeships work?

Learners are given a period of employability training before being placed in a work environment. Work placements will be between 2- 20 weeks; learners then get an interview (ideally for an existing vacancy or apprenticeship opportunity), feedback and a reference. Employers may choose to transfer the learner to an apprenticeship or to paid employment at any point.

Traineeships are fully-funded; work placements are considered an essential part of the training so learners continue to be eligible for JSA throughout the course.
