Traineeships

What employers can expect from providing a work placement for a traineeship and how to set one up.

What is an Traineeship?

A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that unlocks the great potential of young people, aged 16 to 24, and prepares them for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.

At its core are a high-quality work experience placement, work preparation training, and English and maths if needed, giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for, helping them secure an apprenticeship or other job in the future.

Training & Real Work Experience

At Pathway, our traineeship programmes last a duration of between eight and ten weeks, with trainees spending at least 50% of this time spent at our Training Centre located at our Head Office in Birmingham.  The remainder of the traineeship will be spent at an organisations workplace, continuing building on the skills and attributes gained at the centre.

Progression Routes

Once the traineeship programme is complete, trainees are expected to progress in their chosen career path by the way of completing an apprenticeship, or being offered a role at the traineeship organisation.  If neither of these are possible then the trainee should be given a formal exit interview with structured feedback.

Traineeship Funding

The costs of a traineeship are fully covered by the government so the only investment required from an organisation is for the development and training of the individual trainee.

Partnerships

At Pathway, we are continuously looking for businesses to partner with on our traineeship programme so if you are interested in becoming a key step on the ladder for a trainee, please get in touch with one of our advisors.
