A Traineeship is a 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’.

Traineeships can last up to a maximum of 6 months and will include work preparation training provided by the training organisation, English and maths support (if required) and a high-quality work experience placement with an employer.

At the end of their traineeship, each young person will be guaranteed a job interview if a role becomes available or an exit interview together with meaningful written feedback to help them secure an Apprenticeship or employment with another employer.

The employer providing the work experience is not required to pay the trainee but may help with lunch, travel or other expenses.

A traineeship can be an ideal way for an organisation to prepare a young person for an Apprenticeship which they would ultimately like to offer.

The Marches Skills Provider Network and the Ladder for Shropshire can offer further advice on pre-Apprenticeship programmes.
