What is a Traineeship?

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.

Traineeships last anything up to a maximum of six months depending on the needs of the individual and include:

1. A meaningful, high quality, work experience placement of at least 100 hours with an employer, to provide real insight and experience into the world of work.

2. Work preparation training delivered by Steadfast Training which can include CV writing, interview preparation, interpersonal skills and local business and sector information.

3. English and maths support from Steadfast Training to improve young people’s literacy and numeracy skills if required.

In addition to these basic elements, Steadfast Training could add flexible additional content to meet the needs of a specific business for the local labour market; which could include a relevant, industry specific vocational qualification.

All training costs are met by government funding.
