Hi everyone, if you have any questions for Steve or Rebecca please write them in the chat and select 'all panellists and attendees'
Can a young person undertake a traineeship where they attend placement at more than one employer? e.g. one traineeship but with 2 different job roles
Biggest barriers for 19-24 year olds is that Traineeships are not a target for DWP, unlike for example, Sector-based Work Academy Programmes (SWAPs). Unless this is a target, we will get no referrals to Traineeships, as they do not meet DWP requirements.
apologies i came in late due to technical issues. I am after clarification as to how the business claims the incentive for taking a learner on a traineeship please.....
Very basic question sorry - is there any expectation for classroom time to be part of the traineeship? Apprenticeships is 20%off the job training and Supported Internships usually a few hours in the classroom per week.
@Laura Lavender - we are trying to develop an online traineeship, so rather that classroom time, they will work at their own pace, supported by facilitators. The traineeship can include regulated, or non-regulated, training.
@Dee Vickers thank you that's really helpful. Are you working at a College?
@Laura Lavender - yes, I am the Head of Apprenticeships at Kingston Maurward College. And you..?
Traineeships are also competing with Industry Placements (for T Levels which have just been launched), Work Experience for other College Students, as well as Kickstart. The most attractive programme is obviously Kickstart, however could Kickstart be a progression route from a Traineeship? A short period of pre-employability, 70-100 of work experience (around 4 weeks), followed by employment on a Kickstart job?
@Dee Vickers Head of Inclusion at Wakefield College. It'd be great to have a catch up outside of here if you have any time for me to pick your brains :-)
@Laura Lavender - yes, of course. firstname.lastname@example.org
Can a trainee claim Access to Work to fund Job Coach support if needed or can this support be claimed through AEB Learning Support Fund?
yes Richard. We will be
Thank you all
