3. You will gain necessary skills for employment
Each traineeship will last from six weeks up to a maximum of five months and will provide essential work preparation training including English and maths (required for anyone who doesn’t already have a GCSE A*-C equivalent) alongside a high-quality work experience placement provided by the employer.
Large employers and smaller local businesses are all being encouraged to participate in enabling young people to gain the necessary skills across different sectors.
While employers are not required to pay trainees, they will be encouraged to support with meals and travel costs and all training will be funded by the Government.
4. A better chance to become an Apprentice and employed
According to a study by ICM Research, 60% of unemployed young people say they are worried about not being able to get a job in the future and less than four in ten (38%) believe they are ready for work.
Traineeships include a high-quality work experience placement with an employer which will provide meaningful insight into the world of work. With nearly three-quarters of employers reporting that experience is a critical or significant factor when recruiting, this will be an invaluable addition to any young person’s CV.
Traineeships give young people the skills they need to secure a job and succeed in employment, with the content tailored to their individual needs. The work preparation training will ensure young people develop the abilities and confidence needed to take the first step in their career, such as an apprenticeship, while the English and maths support will increase employability and earning potential.
