A Traineeship is an occupational skills development training programme that is tailored to the identified needs of a specific industry sector or sub-sector and leads to nationally recognised qualifications.

This Traineeship incorporated a huge element of work-based learning within Entekra where a designated supervisor supported the learner during the work placements. The work-based learning phase provides a direct entry route to employment and currently trainees are attending interviews with Entekra to secure available positions.
