A new traineeship programme, now being offered by Kidderminster College, is a 14 week education and training programme with an emphasis on work experience, designed to prepare trainees for either an apprenticeship or sustainable employment.
Traineeships are available to young people aged 16-24 who are seeking employment or apprenticeships, but need to develop their knowledge, skills and experience.
Lucia Pullara, 17, who has almost completed the programme, has already completed units on a Level 1 Business Administration course. She carried out her work experience at a local children’s charity, Crackerjacks, throughout the programme. They have now offered her a full-time position as a Fundraising Administration Assistant and she will also be working towards an apprenticeship in Business Admin.
Alongside work experience, students are also given work skills training at the college, including interview skills, CV writing and work preparation. Trainees are also offered functional skills in Maths and English if required.
Lucia said, “I have really enjoyed my traineeship and I am pleased to moving into an apprenticeship and full-time employment with Crackerjacks. Kidderminster College and my work placement have both been really helpful and encouraging. The college have also helped me to overcome lots of obstacles, and I would recommend the traineeship programme.”
Jennie Ellis, Work Based Learning Co-ordinator at the Point, based at Kidderminster College said, “The Traineeship programme has been a great success for Lucia, and has also proved a successful start for Kidderminster College in offering the programme, which will provide opportunities for young people to progress into apprenticeships and employment.”
