How to access a traineeship for employers


Traineeships allow you to nurture the next generation helping your business to develop a loyal, talented workforce.

You’ll have the flexibility to teach trainees job-specific skills aligned to your industry and business. Amongst many benefits, it will also give your current employees the opportunity to build their own mentoring and coaching skills supporting the trainee.

Employers interested in supporting a trainee through the work-based learning element of the Traineeship are invited to contact their local Further Education College’s training unit.

Participating employers agree to provide a minimum of 20% (one day per week) of the programme as work-based learning. The college will work with employers to place trainees and to monitor and track progress on all aspects of work-based learning.
