What are Traineeships and how can they help my business?

If you are looking for an effective way to recruit, train and grow your workforce, then a JTL traineeship is an ideal approach to finding and retaining enthusiastic new employees.

A traineeship is an exciting way for young people aged 16-18 to start training in a specialist role that will eventually lead to a professional career.

With high quality work-based training, a JTL traineeship can not only offer a trainee an immediate introduction into the workplace but also brings a host of benefits to you as an employers.

A traineeship is an effective way to demonstrate your company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility. By giving young people their first opportunity to gain valuable work experience in the workplace, they’ll be better equipped to begin a targeted apprenticeship programme that will lead to a professional career.

What do our employers think?

Construction company Wates supports the JTL Traineeship scheme and finds it a really valuable way of finding out how a potential apprentice might get along in their business, Dave Singh is Performance Manager at Wates,

“For us this is almost a ‘try before you buy’ scenario. We may get 20-30 people come in to interview for apprentice positions and it’s never easy to gauge how committed somebody will be to the job once they are given a place on an apprenticeship just through an interview process. With the traineeships, we are able to see how the candidate fits within the company in real time, and establish how they get on with other team members over a period and gauge their enthusiasm for the job role we are looking to place them in.”
