Health & Social Care Traineeship at HIT Training

Course description

These are a great way to build up your existing skills or learn new ones, and gain valuable work experience. And there’s a real chance of a permanent job at the end.

If you’ve recently left school or college, cannot find paid employment or you are unemployed, and aged between 16 and 23, a traineeship programme delivered by Connect2Care could provide the answer. The care world is well worth a look. Starting out with a job and qualifications in the health and social care sector you should never be out of work, whatever else you do. It gives you a range of highly desirable and transferable skills so, whatever else you may try, you can always return to a care job until you start your next adventure. Through our Traineeship Programme we prepare young people straight from school or college or unemployment for the world of work in the care sector, giving them the employability skills they will need. This could include basic care skills and customer service. It could also include help with Maths and English. We will then place you with participating employers for up to five months’ work experience.

At any time during your work experience, if there is a suitable vacancy and your work and attendance is satisfactory, you may be offered employment. Otherwise, you will return to Connect2Care with new skills, work experience and a much valued reference for your CV. We will then attempt to place you in another job in this sector.

At the end of the traineeship your employer will offer a job interview or an exit interview and either way you will benefit. If you’ve become an important part of the team then a firm offer of employment and an apprenticeship is often the outcome.

Another benefit is that traineeships offer the chance for both the employer and trainee to sample each other before making a formal contract to embark on an apprenticeship and work together. If you think traineeships are for you, you must be available to spend a maximum of five months in a work placement. Training is provided along with additional tuition in English and Maths if you have not already achieved a minimum of GCSE Grade C in those subjects.
