Traineeship at Protocol Consultancy Services

Course description

Employers tell us that they are concerned that young people often lack the right skills and attitudes when they apply for an apprenticeship or other employment. Yet many young people are highly motivated by work, or the prospect of it.

Traineeships will offer these young people the opportunity to undertake a substantial work placement and work skills training, alongside support to improve their English and Maths (if required). Depending on the young person’s needs, a range of other support and flexible training may be offered to help them develop their skills and progress quickly onto an apprenticeship or secure other employment.
