The Context & Issues:
Traineeships are designed to prepare young people who are not quite work ready for apprenticeships or sustainable employment. With the relatively late announcement that 19 to 24 year olds would be eligible – provided they have not achieved a full Level 2 – the new programme is very much still evolving. How will funding for the scheme work? How should learners be selected and supported to ensure they progress to a suitable job? How can employers and providers work effectively together to deliver the programme?
Key issues to be addressed at this Policy & Practice briefing will include:
Progression: helping students progress onto an apprenticeship or into other employment
Business involvement: why should employers take ownership of traineeships?
Guidance: clarifying the separate funding arrangements for different age groups
Support: evaluating the variety of funding routes available to employers & providers
Flexibility: how can you adapt training to suit individual needs & meet benefit rules?
Assessing suitability: selecting learners who will be ready for work within six months
Availability: ensuring that students are not excluded on the basis of geography
Monitoring: tracking learners & looking ahead to success & destination measures
