Post-Traineeship Progression Outcomes
There are five potential progression outcomes for trainees who complete their Traineeship. In an ideal world, the trainee would move into an Apprenticeship with the employer where they undertook their work placement. Alternatively, a provider will have Apprenticeship opportunities with other employers. These opportunities should be identified and explored in advance of the trainee completing their programme.
In some cases, the work placement employer may offer the trainee a non-Apprenticeship role. This may be a preferable short term option for the trainee as the salary is likely to be higher. Other possible progression routes include employment with an alternative employer within six months of completing the Traineeship, or the trainee may move into another form of education or training.
The diagram below highlights those potential progression outcomes.
We would encourage those Traineeship providers who also deliver Apprenticeships to align their Traineeship provision with their Apprenticeship opportunities. Hence, the work placements are planned with the intention that an Apprenticeship opportunity will be available at the end. We would expect those providers to report that the vast majority of their trainees progress onto an Apprenticeship.
