As part of our week of blogs in support of National Apprenticeship Week here is a simple guide to finding out more about Traineeships.

Traineeships are designed help young people who want to get an apprenticeship or job but don’t yet have appropriate skills or experience.

A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that unlocks the great potential of young people and prepares them for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.

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

Traineeships: overview for employers

The flexibility of traineeships offers employers the opportunity to help build a pool of high quality future recruits for your sector.

To find out more about offering traineeships, and the benefits they can bring to a business, please contact Chelsea chelseaspencer@skillsforgrowth.org.uk  or Sophie sophiecorreia@skillsforgrowth.org.uk  

Traineeships: overview for young people

Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people, aged 16 to 24, who are motivated to get a job but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for.

Those who have been unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and experience are most likely be good candidates for a traineeship.

To find out more about starting a Traineeship please contact Charlie charlieedwards@skillsforgrowth.org.uk  or Marie marieoleary@skillsforgrowth.org.uk 

Traineeships: overview for training organisations

Training organisations, like Skills for Growth, have a key role in co-ordinating the traineeship, engaging local employers to offer the work experience placements and encourage young people to participate.
