Traineeships

Could you give a young person the opportunity to develop workplace skills and experience? Get in touch to find out more

With a focus on real work experience and improving skills like maths and English, Traineeships are designed to bridge the skills gap and enable 16-24 year olds in England the chance to meet employers’ requirements.

As part of their programme, the trainee will need to do a work placement within a business. If your business would like to provide a trainee with real work experience, that will not only boost their confidence but develop their skills, then you will benefit from taking on someone who will be willing to work and learn.

Supported by us, we will ensure that they are suitably challenged during their time with your business so they really can add value. There’s no employer contribution required.

Benefits to your business

    • Fulfils your corporate and social responsibility by helping young people within your local community to take that first step into employment.

    • A trainee who’s committed to learning and developing their skills within your business, and adding real value.
    • Develops a capable workforce to sustain your business and sector in the coming months and years.
    • Trainees can seamlessly progress into an Apprenticeship following completion of their Traineeship.
