The first two Traineeship Groups are now successfully underway – with a group being run from both Louth and Skegness. Each group have had 6 sessions – over 2 weeks – in centre, where they have covered CV writing, H&S, E&D, Interview Skills and the infamous Dragons Den activity (presentation/team work skills). All of the Traineeships are now in their chosen workplace gaining invaluable work skills to hopefully help them progress to an Apprenticeship or employment. Employers taking part include: Abbey Converters, Town and Country Kiddies, Desire Change, Riverside Playgroup, Spinning Tops, La Bella Napoli and First College – one of the learners will be placed at our offices in Ida Road, working with Karen and Lesley. A number of other employers have also expressed an interest in taking part in this new programme. The Traineeships are still coming into Centre each week to see their Recruitment Adviser and to work towards their Functional Skills, if required.
The feedback from our first groups of Traineeships has been excellent and in fact they wanted the ‘in-house’ sessions to be for more weeks! Huge thanks have to go to both Wesley and Becky who have run both groups and made them such a success. Well done!
