Over 12,000 16-18 year olds are not in education, employment or training (NEET)
We run a very successful employability programme for 16-18 year olds – this programme is called a Traineeship. Traineeships are a Level 1 qualification and are a fantastic education and training programme that prepares young people for the world of work. Part of the Traineeship programme involves the young person undertaking a high quality full-time or part-time work experience placement. Why not pass on your knowledge to the next generation and benefit from the short or long term fully-funded placements. You can make a big difference by supporting a young learner who can become invaluable to your business in the future. We have a pool of young people who are in training with us on our Traineeship programme who need experience of the workplace. These young people are developing the skills that employers want, as well as the positive attitude to work that is required.
Many of our existing clients have successfully used our Traineeship programme to train a young person who is not quite ready for employment and/or an Apprenticeship. Many Trainees are trained, developed and moulded into valuable employees and, upon successful completion of their Traineeship, have been offered an Apprenticeship position and progressed within the business.
Looking for bright talented young people to join your business?
Considering running a Pre-Apprenticeship programme with us. Our Bespoke Pre-Apprenticeship programmes are run collaboratively with employers who are looking to recruit the most talented young people. The programme is short, sharp, high intensity and is aimed at helping you find the right candidate to fill your Apprenticeship position.
A shorter commitment
If you are not quite ready to commit to a work placement then there are other ways you can support young people to help them get ready for employment. In partnership with Welsh employers, we run a variety of activities that encourage, motivate and educate young people on employability and different types of recruitment processes there are so they are able to reach their full potential when it comes to job hunting. These activities often involve just half a day or a full-day of your time and include employer visits, mock interviews, employability workshops, as well as our Employ Me Days.
