About the Traineeships Toolkit
The Traineeships Toolkit comprises a suite of support mechanisms to enable skills providers and other stakeholders to develop, promote and deliver Traineeships. The information, guides and materials have been produced using both national resources and local expertise, with the added benefit of the analysis and selection of those existing resources.
Greater Manchester Learning Provider Network members have indicated to us that the sheer volume and breadth of information and material available to them in respect of Traineeships is overwhelming, and that it is located in a large number of disparate locations and websites. With this in mind, we have sought to consolidate as much of this information as possible, and to accommodate easy access to the information, by providing a single, unique user ‘portal’.
This Toolkit is designed to be used either as a stand- alone resource, or potentially as part of a longer term organisational development model. The Toolkit will enhance the overall capacity and capability of the Greater Manchester skills system in supporting young people who are at a distance from the labour market, to move into work.
The information and resources found on this website can be updated and maintained when there are changes to policy and provider information.
Providers will be able to download resources for marketing purposes, for Initial Assessment and for work placement employer engagement. All of the downloadable resources can be edited for use by providers and enable them to include their own branding. These resources can be amended and further resources can be added.
For referral agencies, there is a list of providers who deliver Traineeships. The vast majority of which deliver the provision within the Greater Manchester area. This information can be filtered by location of the training centre(s), sectors, starting frequency and length of programme.
Referral agencies are listed to allow providers the opportunity to develop partnerships with organisations who work with young people who are both eligible and suitable for Traineeships.
