Traineeships are flexible programme. By working closely with us you can tailor the Traineeships to meet the needs of your business.
You decide how the programme is delivered which will help you to find the right people with the right values and behaviours to work in your organisation.
Traineeships will provide:
- A stepping stone for young people before being employed in a permanent role or before starting an Apprenticeship.
- The freedom to shape the skills and experience of young people from your local community, helping you to develop a loyal and skilled
workforce individual and the sector
- Opportunity to develop the leadership and mentoring skills of your existing staff working with trainees, and gaining fresh ideas from enthusiastic young people.
We have a high number of trained young people to be placed in workplaces where they can further develop their skills and gain valuable work experience.
Some example of area of work and roles:
- Customer Service – Job roles can be Customer Support Assistant /Advisor, receptionist etc.
- Retails – Job roles can be Shop assistant/Support Assistant etc.
- Business Administration – Job roles can be Office Assistant/Office Admin Assistant, Receptionist, Data Entry etc.
We will discuss with you about the available time slots you can offer to the candidate to carry out work placements based on your business needs such as desired hours ranging from 15 – 24 Hours per week lasting from 6 to 12 weeks depending on circumstances.
If you feel you can offer a Traineeship please contact us and discuss what you are looking for in an employee. This will inform the content of the programme and help the learner to meet their desired outcome which will either be:
- an offer a position/Apprenticeship with your organisation
- an exit interview with constructive feedback and a reference, that will help the individual when applying for other vacancies/apprenticeships.
As the employer you will provide the work experience part of the Traineeship. This can last from six weeks to five months which should allow the trainee enough time to learn and develop new skills and behaviours.
Work placements should be substantial and meaningful, providing the young person with a real workplace experience. Trainees should be encouraged to take part in work related learning activities, rather than observation.
You are also responsible for working with us and the trainee to identify content and objectives. The trainee should be assigned a mentor who can give them regular constructive feedback and either carry out a meaningful exit interview or ideally an interview for an opportunity within your business.
