At the end of the work experience, trainees receive a job interview if a role
becomes available or a reference and an exit interview with the company.

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.
