Traineeships are designed to help young people who are focussed on getting a job, gain the skills and experience for work. They are part of the same family as apprenticeships and are a partnership between an employer and a training provider. They involve high quality work experience, a focussed period of work preparation training and maths and English if required. Wirral Met College is proud to be working in partnership with Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and other local employers to deliver Traineeships to local people across Wirral.

Course details

The Traineeship vacancies involve an initial 4 weeks of work preparation training at college to update CVs, search for work, gain valuable interview skills and improve maths and English if required. This is then followed by an 8 week work placement. These placements will be with various employers including the NHS. Finally a next steps week helps update your CV with the new skills learnt and search for the next opportunity.

  • Be unemployed (or work less than 16 hours per week) and have little work experience
  • Be motivated to work

Are you aged 16-18?
Study programmes are full-time courses for 16-18 year olds which include:

  • A qualification such as BTEC Extended Diploma
  • Meaningful work experience or preparation for work
  • English and maths, if you don't already have GCSE grade A* - C in English and maths
  • Non-study activities such as tutorials, voluntary work, fund-raising/charity work, sport or trips

Where can I progress to?

Once young people have completed a Traineeship, it is expected that they will progress onto an apprenticeship or job, or alternatively, they may decide to enroll on a course to gain specialist qualifications for their chosen career. All students will be offered an exit interview with their work placement organization to help them practice and prepare for future opportunities. Where available, these interviews may be for real apprenticeship or job vacancies within the organization. They will also gain qualifications from courses completed with the training provider to add to their CV.
