Can you offer a Traineeship or work placement opportunity?
Barnsley College has a number of full-time students who are keen to gain first-hand experience of the working environment, which often leads to an apprenticeship or employment opportunity.
The work placement opportunity can be as short or as long as you like, from a few hours per week to a couple of months. This will help shape the student’s perceptions of what it’s like to work in your industry and give them hands-on experience within the work place.
The focus of a Traineeship is to enable people aged 16-24 to gain skills and work experience whilst improving their English and maths qualifications.
Traineeships allow you to assess the ability and attitude of a potential employee before progressing them to a suitable apprenticeship position.
What are the benefits to a business?
- Identify and recruit future talent more cost effectively.
- Introduce new ideas, energy and perspective into your workforce.
- Develop the supervisory skills within your business.
- Enhance your brand image and reputation.
