Traineeships referral sheet: advisers and intermediaries – Publications – GOV.UK


 For careers advisers (including those working within the National Careers Service, Jobcentre Plus, Connexions, local authorities and schools) to help determine whether young people might be suitable candidates for, and how to refer an individual to, a traineeship.

Traineeships are available for young people aged 16 to 24 and for young people with learning difficulty assessments up to an academic age of 25. 

The core target group for traineeships is young people who:

  • are not currently in a job and have little work experience, but who are focused on work, or the prospect of it 
  • are aged 16 to 24 years of age and have not yet achieved a level 3 qualification
  • employers and training organisations believe have a reasonable chance of being ready for employment or an apprenticeship within 6 months of taking part in a traineeship programme

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
