WHAT IS A TRAINEESHIP?

Traineeships offer employers the opportunity to build a pool of high quality future recruits for your workforce. Traineeships allow you to nurture the next generation helping your business to develop a loyal, talented workforce. You’ll have the flexibility to teach trainees job-specific skills aligned to your industry and business. Amongst many benefits, it will also give your current employees the opportunity to build their own mentoring and coaching skills supporting the trainee.

  • 75% of trainees started in employment or an apprenticeship within 12 months of starting a traineeship
