Can you offer a young person a placement for the Traineeship Programme?

We're looking for local employers in and around Brighton & Bexhill that want to help develop young people's work skills and can commit to offering them a work placement 3 days a week for up to 11 weeks. 

The Traineeship Programme gives young people the chance to develop creative skills, build confidence and get a real taste of the working world in a supportive environment and progress into paid employment, apprenticeships or next level of a college course. Employers will gain an extra pair of hands at a low-cost to help with multiple aspects of their business. The young person will bring fresh ideas to the table, and the right candidate will increase staff morale! Not only will you receive the benefits, but you will be helping to support youth employment, and giving a young person an opportunity to better their workplace skills.
