Managing Final Stages
Guidance in the Framework for Delivery 2015-2016 states that “…all Traineeships to offer an exit interview with the work placement host at the end of the placement.”
We expect all Traineeship programmes to offer an exit interview with the work experience host at the end of the placement.
Providers have a vital role to ensure that where a trainee is not progressing to an Apprenticeship or other job with them employer, that the employer conducts an exit interview and provides meaningful feedback. We would recommend that this be incorporated into an SLA.
This creates an opportunity for the trainee on to practice and prepare for future interviews and opportunities. Young person should also receive meaningful written feedback reflecting the work placement and to help improve performance.
Providers should seek final feedback from employer regarding the provider practises to support improvement of delivery of future Traineeships.
