ONE STEP AT A TIME


As part of our Traineeship programme we are looking for employers to offer a 5-week work experience placement. This is a wonderful opportunity to give our young people, who will have a qualification in customer service, some valuable work experience.

Traineeships allow you to nurture the next generation, helping your business to increase capacity, brand loyalty, and productivity, as well as developing a talented workforce that contributes to tackling youth unemployment.

The Benefits

BENEFITS to you


Offering work experience can bring a number of benefits to you as an employer:

Raise your profile – being known as a business that offers work experience opportunities will raise the profile and appeal of your business and sector.

Improve staff retention – investing in young people brings commitment and loyalty, which means they are more likely to stay with the business which helps maintain productivity and reduce recruitment costs.

Grow your own talent – get access to the up and coming talent of the future.

Develop employees – developing your employees by involving them in the placement and providing potential management opportunities can help employees feel motivated and loyal to the business.

Get additional help at no cost – as an employer, you do not have to pay students on work experience.

Achieve new perspectives and ideas – young people often bring fresh ideas and approaches which may open up new and emerging markets for the business.

Gain new understanding of modern learning – increase your understanding of modern learning processes and current educational qualifications.

BENEFITS to trainee


There are a number of benefits for young people and for the rest of society and industry:

Increase in knowledge – work experience can increase students’ occupational knowledge and understanding of the skills, attributes and qualifications required.

Breaking the cycle – many young people find themselves in a situation where they cannot get a job because of lack of experience so taking part in a work placement gives them this valuable experience.

Improvement in communication skills – work placements help young people to gain experience in working with people, enhancing their social and communication skills.

Learning about the recruitment process – applying for a placement provides the opportunity to learn about recruitment eg how to apply for a job, prepare for job interviews and building a CV.

Economic development – work experience contributes to economic development within the local community.

Improve competitiveness – work experience opportunities can help industry to remain competitive.

Case Study

Jahvarni

A positive shift in his attitude to learning


Javharni’s social skills have clearly improved and he is able to hold interactions for a longer period of time. He appears to be finding a positive purpose for himself and the support he has received has contributed to that. He has been able to build positive relationships with staff members which, in turn, has instilled confidence in his potential and learning. TWT School staff have been able to get to know Jahvarni well and support him when he is struggling rather than exclude him.

I’m really impressed with the support he gets at TWT


Jahvarni was excluded 30 times in one year before joining TWT. Since starting at TWT, I have seen a very big change in his behaviour. I feel you have given him a space where he feels wanted and is working with staff that believe in him and saw his potential from the start.

I am so happy and really impressed with the support he gets at TWT. He is a completely different child and is in a much happier place in himself. He is now thinking about the future.
