What does the traineeship programme look like?

The traineeship programme is based at the Catch22 Traineeship office and consists of:

1:1 session with a Catch22 Trainer so that we can understand how to tailor your traineeship to your needs and to best support you.

Classroom training:

Week 1-3 you will be in a group of no more than 15 individuals working toward a City & Guilds Level 1 Functional Skills Maths and English qualification, a Health and Safety at Work Qualification, and a Customer Service Qualification. As well as the qualifications you will be gaining, the Trainers will also be giving you the personal support you need to prepare you for interviews and work.

Week 4 you will receive a qualification that prepares you for the specific type of job you want to get in to. For example, Level 2 Food Safety and Catering, Level 1 Business Administration, Stewarding for Spectator Events, or COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health).

During weeks 1-4 you will be in a classroom each day from 10am-4pm from Monday-Thursday.

Work placement:

Week 5-8 you will be on a work placement at a business that matches your aspirations.

After your work placement we will set you up with a job interview and work with you to make sure you are prepared and confident going in to it. Catch22 will then continue to support you as you transition in to work.
