What is a Traineeship?
A Traineeship is an education and training programme with an added bonus of work experience! Traineeships are aimed at young people aged 16-23 years and help them gain the necessary skills and experience that employers are looking for.
Traineeships prepare young people for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’. It is in essence work preparation training and includes English and Maths assessments along with a high quality work experience placement.
Traineeships can last from anything between six weeks to a maximum of six months with the content tailored to the needs of the young person:
Work preparation training ensures young people are ready and have confidence to take the first step in their career, such as an Apprenticeship.
English and maths support to improve young people’s literacy and numeracy, if required.
A meaningful work experience placement which provides insight and experience of the world of work.
