Our Journey
April – July
2014
Project aim:
To increase Traineeship capacity by improving staff training and support
Key Deliverables
• To provide training and resources to increase staff knowledge and
confidence in creating Traineeships
• Creation of resource pack/good practice manual and dissemination
• Generating new SME Traineeship placements
• Evaluative conference
Staff Development
A staff survey was completed by 52 people to establish baseline knowledge and
confidence:
• 59.6% people were aware of our Traineeship offer, but many could not
outline key elements
• 65.38% people had never discussed Traineeship opportunities with local
people or businesses
• 16% people were very confident creating/supporting Traineeships
Staff Development
The staff survey also asked how and in what format people would like further
information.
The most popular responses included:
• Information leaflet
• Case studies
• Information added to staff intranet
• List of ways staff can help
• Email updates
• Contact details for further info
Staff Development
Outcomes
• Staff Development session: Strenghtening the number and quality of
Traineeships in SME’s and underrepresented sectors (attended by 52 people)
Recorded and blogged
• Staff consultation Meetings/Employer Task Force
• Email updates and electronic information made available
• Information leaflet created as part of larger resource pack
Resource Materials: Outcomes
Employer Task force provided a steering group to agree content and
format:
• Employer Pack
• Staff Delivery Materials
• Brokerage pack
Resources have been shared across a network of more than 1000
colleagues, members and organisations.
Resources will be accessible alongside other project TSSP outputs on
website.
Generating new Traineeship placements: Outcomes
• Generate 10 new placements in 3 new sectors creating 15 new Traineeship
roles
During the lifetime of the project:
• 15 new placements have been created by 14 new companies.
• This has created 15 new Traineeships initially, however many roles are
ongoing.
• New placements are in a variety of sectors – created to meet demand and
increase opportunities in underrepresented areas.
Generating new Traineeship placements:
Accountancy
Childcare
Engineering
Manufacturing
Retail
Admin
Customer Service
Health
Materials/Supply
Warehouse
Key successful approaches in generating new Traineeship placements:
• Brokerage: Agreement established between Chamber and Employer
• Local network
• Assurance of ‘Chamber Approved’ and classroom learning
• Unique position as a member organisation
• Seamless transition into Apprenticeships and ongoing careers
support/development
• New placements and opportunities have been shared across relevant
colleagues to further increase awareness and understanding
