What is a Traineeship?
Traineeships give young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for, helping you to boost your careers prospects with an apprenticeship or other employment in the future.
Will I be paid?
Traineeships are unpaid. The work placement is a real opportunity to gain meaningful work experience.
What are the benefits of a Traineeship?
Traineeships have been developed in response to research showing that young people frequently lack the knowledge and experience employers expect in the workplace. Traineeships will help to tackle this problem, while benefiting you in the following ways:
− The opportunity to build your CV and get valuable work experience with local and national employers, where you are able to learn about the business and the industry it operates in.
− Work preparation training will put you in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or other employment.
− Maths and English support, if needed, to help you with the literacy and numeracy skills needed to boost your career prospects, as well as improving your long-term chances and earning potential over your lifetime.
− Employers are at the centre of the work experience, which ensures you are ‘work ready’, and have the confidence to take the first step to securing employment and kick starting your career.
− At the end of your work experience you’ll get an interview with the company if a role is available or an exit interview, together with meaningful written feedback, to help you secure an apprenticeship.
Is a Traineeship right for me?
Traineeships are ideal if you are motivated to get a job but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for.
If you have been unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and experience, then you are likely to be a good candidate for a traineeship.
