A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that runs over a period of up to 6 months with no cost to the employer.
Trainees are given a programme based on the specific requirements of your business and sector; allowing them to acquire the essential skills and knowledge vital for your profession. During the programme trainees will then spend up to 6 weeks at your business, putting the skills they have learnt to practice.
After the 6 month programme, you have no obligations towards the trainee. However, a lot of companies decide to offer trainees an apprenticeship within their business if they have displayed the relevant skills and knowledge right for them.
The flexibility of traineeships offers employers the opportunity to help build a pool of high quality future recruits for your sector without any incurred costs to the employer.
