Traineeships are designed to help young people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the appropriate work skills or experience. Traineeships provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure an Apprenticeship or employment.

Traineeships have been developed in response to research showing that young people frequently lack the right knowledge and experience employers expect in the workplace.

We offer Traineeships in the following areas

  • Business, Law and Accounting
  • Catering and Hospitality
  • Childcare
  • Computing and IT
  • Construction and Engineering
  • Creative Arts
  • Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy
  • Health and Social Care
  • Housing
  • Motor Vehicle
  • Sport

Traineeships offer the following benefits

  • Work preparation training will put you in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or other job
  • Maths and English support to help give you the literacy and numeracy skills needed to boost your chances of getting a job.
  • The opportunity to build your CV and get vital experience with local and national employers, where you are able to learn about the business and the industry it operates in
  • Employers are at the centre of the work preparation training which ensures you are ‘work ready’ and have the confidence to take the first step to securing a job and starting your career

At the end of your work experience placement you’ll get a job interview with the company if a role becomes available or a reference, and support from an employment co-ordinator to find alternative work.
