K10’s Traineeship Success

rsz_11k10_traineeship

 

K10 have been embarking on delivering Traineeship for a while now. We identified that a large portion of candidates that apply to K10 lack either experience or qualifications to try their hands on construction. Unlike other courses, construction is very different, you cannot simply decide to do an apprenticeship in construction. Due to its competitive nature, the potential employers tend to want apprentices that have some background in this sector. This is where the traineeship comes in.

The traineeship is an 8-week course that’s seperated in two parts. The first four weeks, the learners receive a taste of construction trades in our in-house workshop, Level 1 in Construction Skills, L1 in Employability Skills, L1 in Health & Safety and a CSCS Card, all of which allows the learners to gain the minimal experience needed to go on site. The second part of the course is 3 weeks unpaid on-site work experience.This is where the learners gain vital work experience to have an understanding what construction is and how it operates.

The course has benefited most of our learners who have went on to find an apprenticeship through K10, such as Louise Smith. Whereas, others have found full-time employment from the experience they gained in doing the traineeship. For more information on our traineeship, click here: Traineeship Overview
