Traineeships – maximising progressions into apprenticeships and employment


How can providers maximise trainees’ progressions into apprenticeships and jobs?

Learning and Work Institute was commissioned by the Department for Education (DfE) to identify effective practice that enables young people to progress from a traineeship to an apprenticeship or employment.

The findings are from research undertaken between January 2017 and March 2017. These resources showcase effective approaches and provide insight into ways in which providers can boost their progression rates.

The key message is that no one size fits all – young people have different barriers to employment, and employers have different needs and demands upon their time. Providers with the highest rates of progression are able to adapt their models to meet the needs of individual trainees and employers.
