side by side training

A Traineeship is a government funded training programme that focuses on giving young people the skills and experience that future employers require. The main aims are to prepare young people for work, high quality work experience and if needed additional training on English and Maths.

Traineeships give young people the helping hand they need to compete for apprenticeships and other jobs.

Key Traineeships can last up to 24 weeks during which time the learner will be with the employer full time gaining a valuable insight into the world of work. Just like our top quality apprenticeships the trainee is allocated a Training Consultant who will visit them in the workplace to support them to develop the qualities and skills that the employer is looking for and if necessary Maths and English. Also just like our apprenticeships, trainees are recruited through the same excellent recruitment service that our employers have come to expect. So you can be assured that the trainee will be able to contribute to your business as much as you can to their future.

8 out of 10 Trainees progress onto an Apprenticeship.

Thank you for helping me to secure an apprenticeship through the traineeship scheme. I really enjoyed the traineeship it gave me the opportunity to find out more about the role before committing to the apprenticeship. It really developed my confidence and communication skills and made me feel more relaxed when progressing on to the apprenticeship. Thank you for all your help, I’ll always be grateful.

Our Traineeship charter has been developed to ensure that both employers and young people looking for a traineeship can expect the highest quality from their traineeship experience. Our charter states that a trainee should expect the following from a traineeship:

  • Traineeship placements should give young people the skills relevant to their aims and offer an experience that will boost their chances of gaining future employment.
  • Trainees should be offered careers guidance and advice on other work-related issues such as health and safety and employment rights.
  • Employers taking on a young person for a traineeship are encouraged to support trainees financially.
  • All trainees that complete their traineeship
