Traineeships are designed help young people who want to get an apprenticeship or job but don’t yet have appropriate skills or experience yet.

Instructor and trainee

A traineeship is an education and 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’. Designed to help young people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the appropriate skills or experience, traineeships provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure an apprenticeship or employment.

Traineeships for Employers

The flexibility of traineeships offers employers the opportunity to help build a pool of high quality future recruits for your sector.

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, provided by the training organisation
  • a high-quality work experience placement with an employer

In addition to these basic elements, you as the employer and Green Labyrinth can add flexible additional content to meet the needs of your business and the local labour market.

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.

Traineeships for Young People

Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people, aged 16 to 24, who are motivated to get a job but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for.

Those who have been unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and experience are most likely be good candidates for a traineeship.
