Traineeship Opportunity

Kick-start your engineering career at The Engineering College today! 

The Engineering College are looking for young aspiring engineers to participate in our next Traineeship programme this Autumn.

If you’re unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and experience then you are likely to be a good candidate for a Traineeship.

Traineeships give young people aged 16 to 24 the skills and experience that employers are looking for, helping you to boost your career prospects with an apprenticeship or other employment in the future.

Traineeships are an opportunity to gain real work experience, job skills and improve your English and Maths, if needed.

The Traineeship Programme will provide you with the opportunity to build your CV and get valuable work experience with local and national employers, where you are able to learn about the business and the industry it operates in.

Work preparation training will put you in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or other employment. Traineeships prepare young people for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.

Mia Hesketh, Upton, enrolled onto a traineeship programme prior to starting an apprenticeship with Cammell Laird to develop her skills in the workshop:

“The programme has helped to build my confidence in the workshop and has given me the opportunity to try different engineering trades. I was offered a work placement at Cammell Laird as part of my programme which was really useful and helped me to secure an apprenticeship with Cammell Laird as an Apprentice Welder. My interview would have been more dfficult if I hadn’t already met the Cammell Laird staff and mentors. I wouldn’t know what welding is if it hadn’t been on the Traineeship programme beforehand.
