Traineeships: Why Run Traineeships in Partnership with Pathway Group, Facts for Employers

  1. 1. Traineeships: Why run Traineeships in Partnership with Pathway Group? The Facts for Employers
  2. 2. This slideshow explains why you, as an employer should considering offering Traineeships to young people & explains the benefits of Traineeships for your business Facts for the Employers
  3. 3. What is a Traineeship? A Traineeship is an education & training programme with work experience that is focused on giving young people the skills & experience that employers are looking for and to make them ‘work ready’. At its core are work preparation training, English and Maths for those who need it, & a high quality work experience placement.
  4. 4. What is a Traineeship? Traineeships can last up to six months and include:  Work Preparation Training.  English & Maths* (*support if required.)  A work experience placement of six weeks to five months with an employer. In addition to these basic elements, you, as the employer can add flexible additional content give you specific training tailored for that business & the local labour market meaning that your Trainee will gain specialist skills.
  5. 5. What are the benefits of offering Traineeships? Traineeships have been developed in response to research showing that young people frequently lack the knowledge & experience employers expect. Traineeships help to tackle this problem, while benefiting businesses in the following ways:
  6. 6. What are the benefits of offering Traineeships?  You can design a high quality Traineeship within your company in partnership with us; one that suits both the needs of your business and the needs of the Trainee.  You can get ahead of the competition by bringing enthusiastic young people with their fresh ideas into your business before they get on to the job ladder.
  7. 7.  Traineeships will allow you to shape the skills and experience of young people from your local community, helping your business to develop a loyal & talented workforce.  Working with trainees will give established staff members the chance to develop their skills in mentoring & coaching young people.  If you decide to offer a Trainee an Apprenticeship you could be eligible for an Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of £1500*. (*subject to terms & conditions). What are the benefits of offering Traineeships?
  8. 8. Your company will need to provide:  A high quality work experience placement for the trainee, lasting anything from six weeks to a maximum of five months. Work experience placements should be:  Substantial & meaningful, providing a real workplace experience.  A structured opportunity for the young person, matched to their areas of interest & aspiration, where they engage in purposeful work related learning activities rather than observation.  Long enough to allow for the development and thorough embedding of new skills & behaviours. What will my business need to provide?
  9. 9. Before taking on a Trainee, employers should be able to:  Pre-agree content and objectives between your company, us and the Trainee.  Identify a mentor to support the trainee & give them regular constructive feedback throughout the programme. Before the Traineeship Starts
  10. 10. Once the young person has finished their Traineeship with your company, you will need to give them:  Ideally, an interview for a position within your business if one is available.  If no Apprenticeship or job opportunity exists within your business at the end of the Traineeship, provide a meaningful exit interview together with a reference to help them secure an Apprenticeship or other employment with another employer. The End of the Traineeship
  11. 11. No, Traineeships are very flexible, & by working closely with us you can design a programme which suits your needs and those of the Trainee. We will assess the needs of the Trainee. Depending on the individual they will start the pre-employment elements including local business & sector information. Is it a rigid training programme?
  12. 12. The work experience placement is core to the Traineeship, however it doesn’t have to start on day one of a learner’s Traineeship, but at the most appropriate time. Jointly with you, we will plan when the Trainee should start, the days they come in for work experience & how the programme is delivered. The process can be changed & finessed during the Traineeship so that both you & your trainee get the best out of the process. Is it a rigid training programme?
  13. 13. All training costs are met by Government funding. Employers are not required to pay young people taking part in Traineeships but are encouraged to support trainees with expenses such as transport & meals. Are there any financial costs to offering Traineeships?
  14. 14. Speak with our team by calling: 0121 707 0550 or e-mailing: info@pathwaygroup.co.uk We will be able to support you throughout the process. “Traineeships are a stepping stone to future success for young people, businesses & the wider economy.” How do I get started with Traineeships?
