Traineeships

Information for Employers

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

What is a Traineeship?

A Traineeship is a flexible education and training programme that unlocks the great potential lo young people, aged 16 to 24, and prepares them for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work-ready’.

At its core a Traineeship is a high-quality work experience placement with an employer, with additional work preparation training and English and maths qualifications if needed, provided by the College. This gives young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for, helping them secure an Apprenticeship or other employment in the future.

What are the benefits of offering traineeships for employers?

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

Benefits of a Traineeship to your business are:
