What are Traineeships?
The Tess Group launched delivering Traineeships in 2015. A Traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that is focused on giving young people aged 16-24 the skills and experience that employers are looking for.
At its core are English and Maths qualifications, work preparation training and a high quality work experience placement.
A Traineeship will provide you with the skills and experience that employers are looking for, helping you to secure an apprenticeship or other job in the future. Each programme can be tailored to your individual career needs and will help you to unlock your potential in preparation for a career by helping you to become ‘work ready’.
What are the benefits of an Traineeship?
A Traineeship will ensure you are ‘work ready’ and have the confidence to take your first step towards starting a career and securing yourself an Apprenticeship or job.
You will get the opportunity to build your CV.
You will gain experience with local and national employers to learn about a business and the industry it operates in.
Maths and English support is provided to gain the skills required to boost your chances of getting a job, as well as improving your long term prospects and earning potential.
Work preparation training can make you more employable when applying for an Apprenticeship or job.
Your employer will provide you with an interview or reference at the end of your Traineeship programme.
Is a Traineeship right for me?
Traineeships are ideal for those who want to get a job but don’t yet have the skills and experience that employers look for. If you have previously been unsuccessful when applying for an Apprenticeship or other job, a Traineeship will help you gain the skills and experience required to become successful.
You could be suitable for a Traineeship if you are:
- Aged between 16-24 and qualified below Level 3
- Unemployed or work less than 16 hours per week
If you are aged 25 or older or are already employed, you may want to study an Apprenticeship instead.
How much does a traineeship cost?
All training costs are funded by the Government so you shouldn’t have to pay. You must be a British/EU citizen or have lived in the UK for three or more years.
Will I get paid?
Employers are not required to pay you for taking part in a Traineeship but may offer to support you with expenses. Your bus fares will be paid to cover your travel costs to the training centre and work placement.
