Course Information

What are traineeships?

Traineeships are an opportunity for young people to undertake high quality work experience, together with training in employability skills and maths and English qualifications.

Runway Training provide traineeships to young people to help them gain sustainable employment. Traineeships aim to help young people find work by offering 16-24 year olds in England work experience and training.

Employers such as HSBC, BT, General Motors and Virgin Media are amongst the bigger companies which offer work placements but it is open to any business of any size.

Who are traineeships for?

Traineeships are designed specifically to bridge the gap between school/college and employment, apprenticeship or further education.

They’re most beneficial to those learners who may have found it difficult to concentrate at school because of the large number of students in classrooms. Lots of our trainees experience anxiety and other mental health challenges, being in a smaller and flexible environment provided by the traineeship helps to support their wellbeing.

Why choose a traineeship over mainstream education?

Traineeships are flexible and often offer a more relaxed approach to learning. Traineeships offer the opportunity for work experience and 1:1 support within their chosen career path. We offer an online and face to face option to best suit the learner. Traineeships support with life skills that will help the student become employable.

What does a traineeship look like?

If you choose to join us at one of our centres, you will be offered two days of training and one day of work experience each week, with time allocated for independent studying. We also offer an online option, where the learning and work experience are accessed via Microsoft Teams.

Both options are supported with access to an online platform containing Maths, English, Essential Digital Skills and Employability Resources.

What happens at the end of a traineeship?

At the end of the traineeship you will receive a formal interview with the employer where you undertook the work placement, together with certified qualifications in Investigating Enterprise, Digital Promotion for Business and Functional Skills maths and English if appropriate.’

  • Many thanks Runway training

    I have gained much knowledge from this course. It is the first time I have accessed training virtually and everything was easy to follow with clear instructions for which questionnaire to complete, video to watch or attachments to read. In particularly I found the personality traits and what motivates others and may demotivate another. I will take this learning with me onto the next stage of my career.

  • Thanks for your support during my apprenticeship.

    I will like to show a big appreciation to Zoe Harrison for her support during my apprenticeship to guide me to get not only to pass but to achieve a distinction. She has been very dedicated and supportive during the time that I have known her whilst on the apprenticeship. Zoe has been a source of encouragement to me during times when I questioned whether the apprenticeship was for me and considered dropping out. I just wanted you to know that I believe that Zoe is extremely competent as an apprentice tutor and knows her craft. I believe that she is a valued asset to your organisation and under her guidance many apprentices will succeed. Many thanks

    Pepenbury is a charity that provides high quality care and support for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs.  We train our staff with the necessary skills in order for us to provide the best possible care and management in both Care and non-Care focused roles within the organisation. We have worked with Runway Training over the past year and are extremely impressed with the quality of the training, support and resources provided including the knowledge and expertise of all the staff that we have had the pleasure of working alongside. As an employer, Runway Training have provided us with the flexibility to up skill our staff across various departments including Care (both Residential and Domiciliary) through Health and Social Care programmes but also through Retail Management and Business Administration qualifications.  All staff have been trained to an extremely high standard and Runway Training have worked collaboratively with us, the employer, to support staff through all aspects of their training. Their breadth of knowledge and quality of provision make Runway Training a leader in their industry and it is clear to see how they have achieved all of their current and past accolades.  Their staff are all expert in their fields and it is evident that they pride themselves on professional conduct, which as a result provides highly knowledgeable and up skilled staff for our organisation; we cannot recommend Runway Training highly enough.

  • I had a fantastic learning experience

    I would like to say that I had a fantastic learning experience with the company, I found you very professional at all times, great communication throughout and very supportive. The on-line maths formative assessments where very good and helped me be successful. You were able to get me through the exam in time and I was pleased to receive my certificate when I returned from our holiday, so well done I would certainly recommend you to others.
