First trainees celebrate graduation
THE first group of students have completed Tresham College’s Traineeship programme and have celebrated their achievements.
The 13-week course supports young people into employment and eight students were congratulated for their hard work and commitment to the course at a ceremony held at the college’s Corby campus last month.
Traineeships were launched by the Government for young people aged 16 to 24. They help them gain experience and employability skills needed to succeed in the workplace, or to progress on to an industry apprenticeship.
Tresham launched its tailored Traineeship programme in September, alongside a number of supportive local businesses who have provided six weeks’ work experience. Companies included Costa Coffee, Paragon, DDW Catering, Pets at Home, The Range, Ontex, AGM Chilled Distribution and Lion Heart Embroidery & Print.
Following work experience placements and completion of the course, three students have secured apprenticeships, two have secured full time work and another part time employment, and a further two have job interviews.
Wayne Taylor, Traineeships co-ordinator at Tresham said: “I’m extremely proud of everyone involved and what they’ve been able to progress on to. It’s great to see how local companies have supported the programme and that they are looking to help us improve opportunities for the future.
“ I am hoping to see Tresham’s Traineeships develop as more companies get involved and help the college shape the content of training.”
