What is a Traineeship?

Traineeships have a crucial role to play for those who may need some additional support to develop the skills, knowledge and experience to enable them to progress onto an Apprenticeship.

A Traineeship and its content is tailored to the needs of the trainee and the programme comprises three core elements:

  • Work preparation training, to develop the skills and confidence needed to progress onto an Apprenticeship or into work
  • English and maths support if required, to improve literacy and numeracy
  • Work placement, to provide experience and insight into the world of work

How do these qualifications help trainees?

The Functional Skills are practical skills qualifications in English, Maths and ICT that enable learners to develop confidence, effectiveness and independence both at work and in everyday life.

Learners are also provided with the knowledge and skills to be able to assist with the planning, preparation and delivery of safe and effective sport and physical activity sessions, as well as developing their employability skills. This qualification has been designed to attract government funding at the rate of £1,417 per learner.
