Not sure if you're ready for an Apprenticeship?
Participating in a traineeship allows you to develop your skills and gain qualifications (including English and maths for those who need it) whilst benefitting from high quality work experience. They can last from 6 weeks to 6 months and are an ideal stepping stone to an apprenticeship. The work experience placement is not paid, but the costs of travel and meals might be supported by the training provider or employer.
Young people with SEND may be eligible for support from a job coach for the duration of their traineeship. Job coaches provide on the job support to ensure that the young person is settled and comfortable in their role and can help with things like communication, understanding of tasks and resolving any issues that may arise.
You can find out more about traineeships and search live vacancies within Surrey via the Find a Traineeship Service website.
