Worcestershire County Council Traineeship Programme

Vacancies available to start this September 2020

This is a pre-apprenticeship training programme (Traineeship) which is largely work experience, preparing you for your future career by helping you to become 'work ready'. It is a ‘steppingstone’ into your future career. It is not trade-related, and you won’t be paid, but you may be entitled to a Bursary to cover things like travel and meals and can earn achievement bonuses during the programme.

We also have Training Providers across the county providing work placements in a wide range of businesses including Motor Vehicles, Hair and Beauty and Catering etc. We fit in with your specific needs, so there is a lot available depending on where your interests lie. Contact us to find out more information about traineeships.

Programme of study

These are yearlong programmes which give young people on our programmes the opportunity to attend smaller Training Providers for more personalised development. You can gain qualifications and work experience, in an area of your choice, in a wide range of vocational areas, which include Hospitality and Catering, Construction, Visual Arts and much more. You will have the opportunity to develop your Maths and English skills on either Functional Skills courses or GCSE if appropriate. All our learners complete an Employability qualification to help you gain skills for the workplace. Contact us to find out more information about programmes of study.
