What is a Traineeship A Traineeship is a programme which includes work experience that aims to giving young people the skills and experience required for employment. A Traineeship comprises work preparation training to ensure that young people have the skills and confidence needed for an Apprenticeship or other job, English and Maths for those who require it, and a high-quality work placement which provides insight into, and experience of, the world of work. Traineeships are ideal for young people who are motivated to get a job but who lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for. Young people who have been applying unsuccessfully for Apprenticeship vacancies due to a lack of skills or experience can be good candidates for a Traineeship.

What are the benefits of a traineeship to your company? You as an employer can design a high-quality Traineeship within your company, in partnership with a training provider – one that suits both the needs of your business and the needs of the trainee. You can get ahead of the competition by bringing enthusiastic young people with fresh ideas into your business before they get onto the job ladder. Traineeships will allow you to shape the skills and experience of young people from your local community, helping your business to develop a loyal and talented workforce. Working with trainees will give established staff members the chance to develop their skills in mentoring and coaching young people. Return to Contents Page click here for more information

What will your company be required to do? Pre-agree content and objectives between your company, the training provider and the trainee. Identify a mentor to support the trainee and give them regular, constructive feedback through the programme. Ideally, an interview for a position within your business if one is available If no Apprenticeship or job opportunity exists within your business at the end of the Traineeship, provide a meaningful exit interview, together with a reference, to help the trainee secure an Apprenticeship or other employment with another employer. Employers are not required to pay young people taking part in Traineeships, but are encouraged to support trainees with expenses such as transport and meals. Return to Contents Page
