What is in a TRAINEESHIP?

A Traineeship is a 6 month programme (max) designed to be flexible to meet your individual needs and that of the career you wish to embark on. However within this flexibility are some core elements that the programme must cover.
  • A focused period of work preparation training, covering areas like CV writing, interview preparation, job search and inter-personal skills.
  • English and maths, as these are seen as crucial employability skills.
  • A high quality work placement to give the young person meaningful work experience and develop workplace skills.

Work preparation training

The content of the work preparation training will be dependant upon what you need. We expect this will include personal and social skills that you need to develop in order to get the most out of your work placement and prepare you for future employment. For 19-24 year olds, this will focus on work preparation units and qualifications listed on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).
