Benefits Of A Traineeship
On a traineeship you will learn crucial skills, like teamwork and how to make the right impression.
A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that is focused on giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for. It will give you the confidence of having operated in a real work environment and you can get your maths and English to the required level. All this is geared towards helping you towards your next goal whether this be an apprenticeship, other work or further education. Employers are not required to pay you for taking part in a traineeship but may support you with expenses such as transport and meals. The work placement is a real opportunity to gain meaningful work experience. Depending on your individual circumstances, you may be able to access financial support from your training provider, for example travel and childcare costs or if you need extra support due to a disability. If you are receiving welfare benefits your Jobcentre may be able to financially support you. Training costs are funded by the Government.
