The Complete Package

We understand that there is currently a lot of uncertainty about what you should and could do when you finish school or college this year. We are offering three very simple options;

  1. Live Vacancies: we have some apprenticeship vacancies with organisations who are ready to take on an apprentice.
  2. Enhanced Traineeship: this is an innovative new way of working that bridges the gap between you finishing school and when employers are ready to take on an apprentice. Find out more below.
  3. Great Start or Traineeship: if you’re not sure what to do next, these options will help you gain the skills and qualifications needed to take your next steps.

What is an Enhanced Traineeship? 

Our Enhanced Traineeship is a new way of working. It’s a programme that will bridge the gap between finishing school or college and the time when employers are confident they will be able to start taking apprentices again.

How will it work?

You will apply now for an apprenticeship vacancy offered by one of our partner organisations. You will be interviewed and if successful will be offered the apprenticeship ready to start in November.

In the meantime, you will start a traineeship. You will spend one/two days a week onsite with your employer and one day at WBTC’s training centre in Newbury. You will start to learn about the business you will be starting your apprenticeship with, while also gaining employability skills with WBTC.
