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 combine directed off-the-job training (classroom-based learning) with on-the-job training (work-based learning). A min of 30 % of the course is on-the-job. This approach provides the opportunity to develop practical skills and gain real work experience, reinforcing the theory learnt in the classroom.

Employers and CMETB design all aspects of the traineeship, from programme design and development to recruitment and delivery, therefore tailoring the programme to meet the skill needs and gaps within the industry.
