Time for a Traineeship?Posted: 23rd of September 2015 by
Most people have heard of apprenticeships, but fewer know about traineeships - what they are, and who they are for. If you are a young person who is struggling to land an apprenticeship or find work because of a lack of skills or experience, then a traineeship could be the way forward.
Designed for young people aged between 16 and 24, a traineeship can provide not only experience to prepare you for work, but also allow you to work towards English and Maths qualifications if you still need to get them in order to get an apprenticeship or job.
While traineeships are designed for young people who are looking to get a foot up in their careers, they do require a certain amount of dedication to complete them.
A traineeship brings together education and training with real-life work experience to not only get young people on the right path, but also seeks to unlock potential and get them ready for work.
With employers complaining that many young people lack the skills that make them employable, a traineeship will work to combat this problem directly.
With most employers wanting a applicants to have English and Maths, a traineeship can offer both a practical qualification and some invaluable work experience. Even if the experience is not in exactly the area you want to work in, it still shows a willingness to work, and that you have picked up some basic employability skills.
Of course, ideally a traineeship can lead straight into a full-time apprenticeship, which will build on these skills, offering further experience, a wage and another qualification too.
Helping to plug gaps in both education and skills, a traineeship could set you on the right route for a rewarding career.
