An exciting new path for trainees

Get rewarded with our new traineeship programme!

This month we’ve launched a brand new offer, something unique that offers you, and other young people, the chance to earn while you undertake valuable work experience, gain new skills and find your path to success.

This week, The Office for National Statistics announced 13.4% of 16-24 year olds are now unemployed. In response to this, and to support the government’s £1,000 incentives for businesses providing placements for trainees, we will now pay trainees for their work experience.

This pioneering new offer not only gives you financial rewards and a qualification, but also the chance to specialise in a work sector that interests you or build your own with our support.

So, what’s a traineeship all about?

A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. A traineeship will provide you with valuable skills and experience, to prepare you for an apprenticeship, job or further study. So, if you’re 16 to 24 years old, or 25 years old with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), this news could be for you.

We’re a leading provider of traineeships, having supported over 600 trainees since traineeships began in 2013. Our trainees have also won Trainee of the Year five years in a row at the Grow Somerset Talent Awards. Many have gone on to an apprenticeship, full time work or studied further, proving you can succeed and achieve with us.

Sound good? We’ve now gone one step further!

We’re offering new, unique work sector specific traineeships in the areas below, as well as a universal traineeship where you choose your specialism and we tailor the course to you…

Universal (tailored for your career choice)

This means you can really follow your dreams and focus on an area of work that interests you, gaining the qualifications and experience employers are looking for.

And that’s not all! Work placements are usually unpaid, but we want to encourage and reward you to take the next step towards your future. If you’re aged 16-18 and you start a traineeship with us before 31 December 2020, you can earn up to £500, depending on your household income.
