Traineeships

Do you want to get a job, but you’re not sure how to go about it?

Do you worry that you don’t have the skills and knowledge to go straight into work?

Are you worried that you won’t know what to do when you get there?

Traineeships provide help and support for young people aged 16-23 who need that extra boost in moving into employment as an Apprentice.

We will help you to progress into full Apprenticeship, employed and paid as quickly as possible.

We prepare you for Apprenticeships by:

  • offering a 6-8 week classroom based training in employability and functional skills
  • potentially getting you paid up tp £800 a month once you are offered an Apprenticeship.

What is a Traineeship?

Traineeships are programmes designed specifically to help you to gain work skills, work experience and get ready for employment in around 12 weeks. They include:

  • 6-8 Weeks Training

    Classroom training (full time) to prepare you for work and provide you with qualifications.

  • Work Experience

    A work placement with a local organisation for up to 6 weeks

  • Job Interview
