What is a Traineeship?

Traineeships are an education and training programme which is available for young people aged 16-24 inclusive, including young people with Learning Difficulty assessments or Education, Health and Care plans.

Traineeships prepare young people for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.

Traineeships can last up to a maximum of six months with the content tailored to the needs of the individual, including:

Workskills – Focuses on both the softer elements of preparing individuals for employment such as self assessment and goal setting through to managing their health whilst at work and the more measurable elements of CV writing, applying for jobs and interview skills.

All learners receive advice, guidance and support on the next steps to gain employment.

Functional Skills - are the essential skills needed for ENGLISH, MATHS and ICT, vital for young people and adults to participate in life, learning and work.

All learners will be given an initial assessment at the start of the employability programme to establish what areas of functional skills require development. Functional skills will be developed throughout the term of the programme through a variety of methods which will include some formal classroom teaching.

Learners will undergo a final test to assess their progression in Functional Skills

A high quality work placement – to give the individual meaningful work experience and to develop workplace skills with a view to progression onto a full apprenticeship programme or full time employment.

Vocational qualification – you will undertake a vocational qualification relevant to the industry/job placement you will enter, which will enhance you long term prospects of getting work in this sector.

Traineeships offer the employer the opportunity to work with the individuals through a work placement programme that lasts between 100 to 240 hours at a maximum of 30 hours per week.

The aim would be to progress the individual onto a full apprenticeship programme at the end of the traineeship within the assigned company.
