Traineeships for Employers
Looking to take on an apprentice or a new member of staff but not sure where to start? As an employer, you could provide traineeships to 16-24 year olds. The idea behind the scheme is to provide a bridge that prepares young people for Apprenticeships or suitable employment with a focus on progression rather than an end destination.
If a young person taking part in the scheme were to show potential in becoming a productive team member, you would be encouraged to support them in applying for an apprenticeship or other suitable vacancy.
Trainees will do two days a week work experience each week and 1 day of training consisting of small groups focussing on Employability Skills, CV writing, Interview Skills and maths and English where appropriate. The duration of the work placement for a traineeship will be a between 6 weeks and 5 months.
The employer is not required to pay the trainee for the work placement as traineeships fall under an exemption to the minimum wage. You would however be encouraged, but not required, to consider providing trainees with support for their travel and meal costs.
Runway Training work closely with our employers and trainees to ensure the trainee and work placement are matched effectively to create a mutually beneficial opportunity. We will work collaboratively in planning and delivering a bespoke learning and training programme.
