Traineeships are designed to combine education and training with work experience, giving young people (16-24) the opportunity to develop key employability skills. They are ideal for anyone who is not sure of their future career path, or who would like to trial different job roles and industries.

A Traineeship helps to boost your prospects by offering the skills and experience that employers are looking for and, upon completion, allowing you to progress onto an Apprenticeship or Full-Time course. You may even be offered a permanent position with your Traineeship employer.

Throughout the duration of your Traineeship, you are given real work experience whilst developing crucial employability skills to help you in your chosen career path. The programme can last from six weeks up to one year and you are able to trial as many different industries within that time as you wish, with the content tailored to your individual career needs.

Alongside your high-quality work experience placement and essential work preparation training, we will also support you in gaining your Maths & English qualifications, should you need them.

As part of our collaborative work with Eden Project and the development of the Morecambe Bay Curriculum, trainees will have the opportunity to take part in crucial, community-based projects, enhancing their citizenship, entrepreneurial & employment skills and developing their knowledge and understanding of sustainability.

Is a Traineeship for me?

Being a trainee means you will be provided with a meaningful work placement in an employment sector of your choice. You will need to undertake a minimum of 70 hours on placement, gaining quality experience and a chance to acquire a Level 2 qualification in employability (if applicable) to aid your progression and development. Over the course of the Traineeship, you will work with your tutor and placement provider to develop the skills and experience you need to progress and succeed. You will also gain valuable work experience and transferable skills to improve your CV and boost your overall employment chances and aid in your progression on to an Apprenticeship or employment.

Where can a Traineeship take me?

A Traineeship at LMC will give you confidence from experience of a real work environment and, where required, you can improve your Maths & English grades. All of this is geared towards helping you progress to your next career goal - whether this be an apprenticeship, employment or further education.

What do employers look for?

Employers are at the centre of a Traineeship, providing you with the work experience which ensures that you are ‘work ready’ and have the confidence to take the first step towards getting a job and kick starting your career.

Employers won’t expect you to be the finished product – for them, attractive Trainees are motivated young people who are committed to learning.
