Learn About Traineeships

A Traineeship is an occupational skills development training programme that is tailored to the identified needs of a specific industry sector or sub-sector and leads to nationally recognised qualifications.

;

What is a Traineeship?

Traineeships are formed through a collaborative partnership involving CMETB and local employers. It combines classroom-based learning with work based learning which is delivered in a host company, thus providing the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and competence within a supportive working environment.

Both classroom-based and work-based phase structures and durations can vary depending on the sector of industry. Employers and CMETB design all aspects of the career traineeship, from programme design and development to recruitment and delivery, therefore tailoring the programme to meet the skill needs and gaps within the industry.

  • OEM Engineering Technology Traineeship, in partnership with Combilift
  • Architectural Technology and Design Traineeship, in partnership with ENTEKRA
