FC Traineeships Programme

The Fareham College Traineeship Programme is designed for 16-24 year olds who are looking to get their foot on the career ladder but need that extra support to develop certain skills prior to being put forward for an apprenticeship programme.

Our programme mixes developing skills and knowledge with a work experience placement to get you ready for an apprenticeship programme or other full time employment with actual work experience within an employer over a 13 week period. Work experience content starts 4 weeks into the programme. This work placement increases over the duration of the rest of the programme to support you in getting used to the experience of full time employment.


Prior to Enrolment

Prior to you enrolling on the course you will need to be placed within a company for your work experience. We will forward your CVs to our sponsor companies who will interview you for you work placement.
