Traineeship are a proven way to give young people the skills and opportunity they need to be ready for work.

The benefits are;

Young people will gain valuable employability skills and relevant work experience.
Employers will have the opportunity to shape the skills and experience of young people from their local community, helping their business to develop a loyal and talented workforce.
Working with trainees will give experienced staff the opportunity to develop their skills in mentoring and coaching young people.

A Traineeship provides employers and young people with the opportunity to see if the work environment suits them before committing to a job or an apprenticeship.

  • Flexible education and training with work experience
  • Pre Apprenticeships can last from 6 weeks to 6 months and are for young people aged between 16 and 18
  • A work experience placement that lasts between 70-240 hours with a guaranteed exit interview and reference on completion of the work placement
  • Individually planned programmes, which will include English, maths and vocational qualifications where appropriate.

A testimonial from Georgia May “Achievement training has really been the best thing that happened to me I was struggling a lot at the start of the year not knowing where I was going in life but since joining and having a dedicated tutor right there helping me has been the best thing for me I have completed two courses and passed both and I then went on to get my maths which I never thought was possible, if it wasn’t for my tutor I would not have been able to do it. Achievement Traning really is the best place.”

“Achievement Training has helped me in just less than 6 months to find a job! I
completed work experience and my training advisor Rita helped me a lot and she was always
there to answer any queries I had”

Phoebe Elliott

“The traineeship not only improved my day-to-day work organisation but also challenged
me to think differently which helped to broaden my mind”  I am now progressing with Achievement Training to the next level in Maths and have a full time job.

Ruben Potts

“I have recently been employed as a business administration apprenticeship working in an office for a training company. I gained this post after completing a Traineeship programme. I would highly recommend a Traineeship, it gave me the chance to get some real experience of working in an office and gain some of the skills I would need to find employment when I attended job interviews I was able to talk about my experience which gave me loads of confidence.”


“Before the Traineeship, I had no direction in my career prospects, but now I have improved my skills, my maths and English grades have improved and I have almost completed a Level 2 Health and Social Care course with the prospect of starting a placement soon. My goal now is to go to university and become a Social Worker.”
