Skills that Employers want

A Traineeship is available to 16 – 19 year olds and is ideal for Employers who want to train an individual to progress to an Apprenticeship within their organisation. As part of the Traineeship programme a young person will learn skills specific to your business, which could be on a part-time or full-time basis. Why not support a learner who could become invaluable to your work requirements in the future, and also benefit from short or long term fully-funded placements
