A Traineeship is a Pre-Apprenticeship programme that includes meaningful work experience to provide workplace skills. It can last between 6 weeks to 6 months.

If you, or someone you know, is:

  • Aged 16-24
  • Has little or no work experience
  • Unemployed or employed for fewer than 16 hours per week
  • Lacking in the skills/knowledge/confidence to secure an Apprenticeship
  • Wants to work
  • Has been applying for Apprenticeships and has so far been unsuccessful
  • Has qualifications below Level 3

If you can answer yes to all of these, then a Traineeship may be an option.

Work Experience Placement

We provide a supportive and safe work experience placement to develop the skills, knowledge, confidence, attitudes and behaviours needed to succeed at work.

What Work Preparation Support Will You Get?

Trainees attend our centre one day a week where we deliver Work Preparation Training, covering areas such as CV-writing, interview preparation, job search and inter-personal skills. These skills will help secure employment and provide the attributes to keep employment.

English and Maths Skills And Qualifications

We know that often GCSE A*-C grades are what employers look for when recruiting someone. SS&L offer support to improve and gain a higher grade in English and maths, as these are seen as crucial employability skills. These skills are also delivered as part of the training day with SSL.

Traineeship Areas And Job Prospects

SS&L offer Traineeships in almost anything, making us one of the most flexible providers. We can advise on career and industry options and have links to local employers, who are regularly looking to recruit both full-time and part-time staff in a range of different sectors. All that's required is enthusiasm, reliability and commitment!

What Next?

SS&L offer Information, Advice and Guidance before, during and after completion of the Traineeship. We support progression onto an Apprenticeship or help secure other employment. We can also assist in moving into full time education or training ready for the world of work and future prospects.
