Traineeships Presented by Stuart Parkes 17th June 2014

Who are Traineeships for?

The core target group for Traineeships is young people who: • are not currently in a job and have little work experience, but who are focused on work or the prospect of it; • are 16-19 and qualified below Level 3 or 19-24 and have not yet achieved a full Level 2; and • providers and employers believe have a reasonable chance of being ready for employment or an Apprenticeship within six months of engaging in a Traineeship.

Traineeships are not intended for:

• the most disengaged young people, who require very intensive support; • those who already have the qualifications, skills and experience needed to start an Apprenticeship or find work; or

those already in a job.

What is a Traineeship?

Traineeships last anything up to a maximum of six months depending on the needs of the individual and include:

1 2 3

A meaningful, high quality, work placement with an expectation of between 100 to 240hrs with an employer, to provide real insight and experience of the world of work. Work preparation training, which can include CV writing, interview preparation, interpersonal skills and local business and sector information. Maths and English support from the training provider to improve young people’s literacy and numeracy skills if required.

In addition to these basic elements, flexible elements can be added to suit the needs of employers and learners. 4 | Traineeships – AAN Guide


Changes for 14/15 Age range – announced in the Skills Funding Statement plans to extend funding eligibility to include 24-year olds from 2014/15, making Traineeships available to young people aged 16-24 inclusive. Identifying the lead employer – introduced flexibility to enable providers to identify the employer providing the work experience placement up to four weeks after the Traineeship has started

Changes for 14/15

Duration and intensity – We have removed the six weeks minimum and five months maximum duration for work experience and in 2014/15 will expect work placements to last between 100-240 hours. 16-hour rule – in March 2014, DWP removed the 16-hour rule which restricted the number of hours young people on Jobseekers Allowance could undertake the training elements that form part of their Traineeship 8-weeks consecutive work experience – DWP have agreed to a more flexible model of delivery for benefit claimants undertaking Traineeships, giving providers and employers greater flexibility to design programmes which enable work

experience to take place alongside the other training elements of the Traineeship.

Changes for 14/15

For benefit claimants from 2014/15 the work experience element can be up to 240 hours (or extended if the offer of an Apprenticeship place is accepted) at a maximum of 30 hours a week, and can be done over the duration of the Traineeship if necessary.

Employers - The ask

We want employers to offer real work experience to 16 -24 year old young people in their business for a period up to 6 months.

Expectation is that work placements will last between 100-240 hours. Longer placements may be necessary to prepare young people for work.

Ideally, if the employer is impressed with the young person, we want the employer to subsequently employ the young person as an apprentice. However there is no obligation for the employer to do this.

Myths • The work experience must be 6 months long – No, it can be as short as100 hrs • The employer must pay the Trainee – No, the employer may want to offer the young person travel or subsistence support, but Traineeships are for unemployed young people. • Exploitation of young people – No, employers are offering young people the opportunity to learn in a real work environment and the chance to impress an employer with their enthusiasm and ability to learn.
