Work Placements and Traineeships
There are many benefits to taking on young people for work placement opportunities. These include:
- Fresh ideas – reflecting the needs and interest of the next generation of customers and consumers
- Staff development – providing opportunities for existing staff to supervise and mentor an individual
- More engaged workforce – sending a positive message to the wider workforce about the values of the organisation
- Talent spotting – identify and engage with young people for future recruitment opportunities
Please enquire for more information.
A Traineeship programme is designed to combine both education and training with work experience, giving young people the skills employers are looking for
Traineeships can last up to 6 months and include work preparation training, English and Maths support, if required, and a work placement of between 6 weeks to 5 months, with an employer.
Traineeships will allow you to shape the skills and experience of young people from your local community, helping your business to develop a loyal and talented workforce. They give established members of staff the chance to develop their skills in mentoring and coaching young people.
As an employer, you can design a high quality Traineeship in partnership with Nelson and Colne College – one that suits the needs of your business and the local labour market, as well as the Trainee.
