PET-Xi Traineeship

A 12 week course designed to get young people into an apprenticeship or employment

A Traineeship is a 12 week course designed to get young people into an apprenticeship/employment. They will receive: 1:1 support, information advice and guidance, Functional Skills Maths and English qualifications (if required).

Students will also receive Work preparation training focusing on areas such as CV writing, Confidence building, interview tips and inter-personal skills, including preparation for the specific work placement.

As part of a Traineeship students must do a minimum of 100 hours on work placement, PET-Xi will work with students to choose the correct placement for them, this will be based on their sector choices and will be a quality work experience placement with live employers.

“The traineeship is really good, it helped me understand how to search and apply effectively. Gave me confidence in interviews and I even achieved my Maths L2. I grew up a lot in the 3 months with PET-Xi and am now in a full time apprenticeship. The staff are great, they’re fun but direct, they tell you straight.”
