Are you looking for something new?
Maybe you don’t feel like your career path is working out?
If you’ve been furloughed, made redundant or you just want to make a change in your life, a Traineeship could be the perfect way to make a new start.
We have Traineeships available right now at businesses across a wide range of sectors. It’s a real opportunity, with a real job potentially waiting for you at the end of the Traineeship.
Time to refresh
We’ve been working with employers to offer young people under the age of 25 the chance to learn a new job. We know that times are moving quickly and that there’s no such thing as a job for life any more. Technology moves faster than ever and our smartphones have changed the way that we interact with the world. Our high street looks very different now without familiar names like Topshop and Debenhams.
We’re all adapting to a changing world and there’s nothing wrong with wanting to re-skill, even if you’ve not been in the workplace for very long. If anything, you’re ahead of the curve!
New beginnings for everyone
There’s been a lot of talk in the news about getting back to “the new normal” after the Covid pandemic. The truth is that not everything is going to be the same. Since Covid 19 hit the UK economy in 2020, businesses have been forced to adapt and do new things in new ways. It’s fresh territory for everybody. And right now, employers are looking out for young, energetic staff with bright eyes and new ideas.
The great thing about our Traineeship programme is that it offers real placements at great businesses. If you’re looking to work in health and social care, education, hospitality, tourism, the legal sector or many other types of job, we’ve got something for you.
Upskill and reskill for the future
You can pick up skills and qualifications in areas like Food Hygiene, Health and Safety or Manual Handling. You can brush up on Maths and English skills too. You’ll have your own Training Consultant, who will devise a programme that is bespoke to you and your employer, making sure you are supported all of the way. If you’re on Jobseeker’s Allowance or Universal Credit you’ll be able to continue to claim, because a Traineeship is classed as full-time education until you take a full-time role.
A Traineeship is also a great way for you to learn about yourself as well as your new potential employer. When I talk to young people who have completed Traineeships I hear about the new skills they have acquired but I also hear about how they have grown as people, navigating adult life with more confidence and assurance. Our Trainees don’t just have new jobs, they have also left home, formed new friendships and started new lives.
Embrace change and a new opportunity
Perhaps the best way to look at a Traineeship is as “a long job interview”. It’s an opportunity for you to shine and progress to a job or perhaps an Apprenticeship or further education at the end of your course.
The key message is that Traineeships are changing. Right now, the government is focusing on Traineeships as part of the fightback against the economic effects of the Covid pandemic. Young people across the country are getting back into work, with new skills and in new workplaces. So could you.
Are you ready for the new you?
