Career Traineeships

Traineeship has a number of key features. Its primary aim is to provide work-based learning in partnership with employers, improving employment outcomes for participants and recruitment, retention and productivity within industry. Traineeships are generally 40 weeks in duration, beginning in an education and training environment, with work placement following either during or a er the on-campus learning. A traineeship includes a substantial period of time (generally 30% minimum) in the workplace. Development of a traineeship programme is triggered by identification of a skills need within a particular industry. Successful trainee participants receive an award or industry certification at Levels 4-to-6 on the National Framework of Qualifications. The work-based component is supported by an in-company mentor/supervisor who oversees completion of each trainee’s skills checklist on-the-job.
