why a traineeship?
Traineeships help unlock the great potential of young people and prepare them for their future careers by giving them the training they need be become 'work ready'.
A Traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience focusing on giving you the skills and experience that employers are looking for. At its core, a traineeship provides you with preparation training, a high quality work experience placement and English and mathematics for those who need it. Traineeships can last up to six months and include:
- Work preparation training.
- English and mathematics.
- Structured work placement.
Why should I apply for a Traineeship?
Traineeships were developed in response to research which showed that young people frequently lack the knowledge and experience employers expect in the workplace. Traineeships help you unlock your full potential and prepare you for your future career by helping you to become ‘work ready’.
At The Real Apprenticeship Company, we offer traineeships in transport and logistics and have launched The Real Academy, a recruitment portal which allows us to recruit and work with trainees who are eager, motivated, flexible and looking to progress onto an apprenticeship or full time employment.
Our trainees make an active choice to gain the employability skills they need to prepare them for the world of work. Each trainee attends a two week workshop before going on to gain practical skills through a structured work placement lasting between six to 12 weeks.
The Real Traineeship is a unique offer open to anyone between the age of sixteen and twenty four who wants to develop their employability skills. As well as gaining a qualification, each trainee will receive training and coaching to map their career and develop their potential so they can plan their future with confidence.
A Real Trainee joins The Real Academy and has a passport to a lifetime of learning opportunities. The Real Apprenticeship Company works with learners to support and guide them in the recruitment and selection of the best traineeship. We work with trainees to:
