Building the workforce of the future

Traineeships provide young job seekers with the skills, knowledge and experience employers need and expect in the workplace. They are designed to bridge the gap between education and employment for young people aged 16 to 24 by providing:

  • Work experience - the programme is built around a work experience placement of at least 30 hours per week to give trainees real experience of employment and help them gain the skills employers need.
  • Work preparation training – a traineeship develops essential skills such as teamwork and customer care skills, as well as interview preparation, CV writing and job search skills.
  • Maths and English – employers routinely report they want their employees to demonstrate good levels of English and maths  - so if they haven’t already gained a grade C or above at GCSE level, a trainee will start working towards Functional skills in these key areas.

At Babcock, we have carefully designed our eight week traineeship programme to provide an effective pathway into an apprenticeship. At the end of the traineeship we hope that you will be able to offer your trainee an apprenticeship, although we recognise that this is not always possible. Either way, you can be assured that by providing a traineeship opportunity you are giving a young person that all important first step on the career ladder.

Traineeships offer a cost-effective solution to developing your workforce.  Trainees work on a voluntary basis - although we would encourage you to reimburse travel costs and/or other expenses.

So, if you can offer a young person that all important first step on the career ladder download the pdf or contact us using the details below.
