IPS International is happy to announce that it is expanding delivery of Traineeship programmes.

Are you looking for the next step and don’t know what you want to do career wise? Or are you a business looking to work trial someone to make sure they meet your needs?

A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. It can last from 6 weeks up to 12 months, with most lasting less than 6 months.

Traineeships help 16 to 24-year olds – or 25-year olds with an education, health and care (EHC) plan. Traineeships support you to gain appropriate skills and qualities to allow you to progress into further employment or education such as an Apprenticeship. The process can be changed and adapted during the Traineeship so that you and the young person both get the best out of the programme.

Mentioned in the March Budget on 3rd March 2021, an additional £126 million for 40,000 more Traineeships in England, funding high quality work placement for 16-24 years olds will be in the 2021-22 academic year.








Traineeships give you as the learner the opportunity to gain work experience, functional skills and the option to try a specific sector and see if that is the career path for you.

In the programme, you will cover a wide range of key employability skills to secure long-term employment. These include writing a comprehensive CV and cover letter, learning how to complete job applications and interview techniques. Furthermore, you will be able to undertake vocational skills in a sector area of your choice to give you a head start in that area. Delivery of the Traineeship will take place in a blended approach with a combination of face to face delivery and remote training sessions using online platforms.

You can get ahead of the competition by bringing enthusiastic young people into your business before they get on the career ladder. Working with traineeship learners could also benefit your employees, giving them experience in training and mentoring. Traineeships allow you to increase productivity and help your business develop a loyal, talented workforce, shape the skills and experience of young people and generate good PR for your business by contributing to tackling youth unemployment with possible progression to apprenticeship opportunities.

Also, there is a new payment of £1,000 being provided by the Government as an incentive for every individual Trainee. (Up to a maximum of 10 per Business.)
