Traineeships in Animal Care and Office Work

What’s a Traineeship? It is a new government scheme for young people who want to work, but who need extra help to gain an apprenticeship or job. A Traineeship will give you the opportunity to develop the skills and workplace experience that employers require and give you a better chance at the future you want.

  • Are you aged between 16 to 23?
  • Do not have a level 2 qualification or higher (Level 3 for 16 to 18 year old)?
  • Unemployed or in paid employment working fewer than 16 hours a week?
  • Have little work experience but want to work?

A Traineeship will give you the chance to develop the skills that employers are looking for, including CV writing, interview techniques, time management, problem solving at work and much more. Build your confidence as you work within a friendly team and gain the necessary work experience to help you apply for jobs.
