What are traineeships?

Traineeships give 16-24 year-olds the skills and knowledge needed to launch an exciting career, offering insights into a variety of industries.

There is no limit to the range of skills you can acquire as a trainee, from hands-on work experience to skills essential in any job.

Traineeship programmes usually last between 8 and 16 weeks, with Babington Group’s training advisors supporting you to become work-ready. They can put you in good stead for an apprenticeship, or help you get a foot in the door to future employment opportunities.

Which industries take trainees?

Traineeships used to have a reputation for being a good route into more ‘practical’ industries. Now you can take a traineeship in just about anything! Opportunities range from customer service to childcare, and from hospitality to social media.

Many industries are starting to see the benefits that traineeships can offer in finding new talent. That means there is a host of opportunities available for you – take a look at some here!

How long do traineeships last?

Traineeship programmes usually last between 8 and 16 weeks. They can be longer than this, however, and some traineeships are flexible.

You will gain a minimum of 100 hours of work experience, ensuring you develop the skills and experience you need for your career progression.

Do traineeships lead to employment?

While there is no guarantee of employment after a traineeship, employers will love that you have shown initiative in gaining industry experience.

Babington’s tutors will also make sure you are ready for work, by covering skills such as CV and cover letter writing, and interview technique.

What you put into a traineeship will be what you get out of it, so who knows – for the right learner, a traineeship could lead straight into employment. Either way, there’s no doubting the boost a traineeship can give to your CV.
