Business traineeship

A business traineeship

Do you have a strong sense of responsibility, accuracy and attention to detail. On a business traineeship, your exact duties will depend on your employer and job role but could include: typing up board meeting documents, putting financial information together in spreadsheets, sending the daily post, faxing and photocopying confidential documents.

A traineeship is a programme that combines education and training with work experience, and is focused on giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for.

Traineeships are very flexible, and LifeSkills/Progressions UK work closely with you the employer to deliver programmes which suit both the needs of your business and those of the learner.

Our traineeships last up to 17 weeks and include the following key elements:

  • Work preparation training provided by LifeSkills/Progressions UK
  • English and maths support as required, provided by LifeSkills/Progressions UK
  • A high-quality work experience placement with a suitable employer

You will also get the chance to get some local work experience and help you put what you have learnt on the course into practice and get that vital experience on to your CV.

So no matter what type of business you want to work in, a traineeship could be your first step in helping you get your first job or getting an apprenticeship.
