Our Courses

On both our Mint Study Programme and Traineeship courses we focus on supporting young people to achieve the skills, qualifications and work experience they need to progress into an Apprenticeship, job or further education in the occupational area that they are interested in.  Our courses cater for every type of job a young person may be interested in from accounts to warehousing, music to cooking, outside or inside.

For students that are looking to re-take their GCSE in English or Maths; we deliver these at all our centres.

Our courses comply with the Governments “Raising the Participation Age” agenda, and are an alternative to school 6th forms and College.  Whilst on a Juniper course you may be eligible to receive a bursary payment and a free meal.  Child benefits and working tax credits can continue to be claimed.

Traineeships

About Traineeships

Traineeships prepare young people for employment, so that they are able to progress successfully to apprenticeships and other sustainable jobs.  Work experience in Traineeships provides young people with the experience of a real workplace so that they can develop the skills, knowledge, confidence, attitudes and behaviours they need to succeed at work.

 

Juniper offers Traineeships to 16-18 year olds (19-24 with an EHEP) across all of our centres.  In addition to this 19-24 year olds in Wednesbury, Walsall, Waterfront, Derby, Burton, Wolverhampton and Leicester are also able to access a Traineeship.

The primary objective of a Traineeship is for young people to secure sustainable employment, an apprenticeship or a course of further learning.  Traineeships are designed to benefit young people that are within six months of being able to progress. Traineeships last for up to a maximum of 6 months and reflect the needs of the student.

Traineeships at Juniper include:

  • Work Experience in the occupational area of interest with real employers (the main part of the course)
  • GCSEs and Functional Skills in English & Maths
  • The skills for the world of work, including  CV building, interview techniques, communication and confidence
  • Our Progression Promise – which is our commitment to you and your progression route following the Traineeship course
Hospitality

Hospitality Work Experience

Traineeships at Juniper are ideal for students that are:

  • Aged 16–24 (students aged 19-24 can only access provision in Wednesbury, Walsall, Waterfront, Derby, Burton, Wolverhampton and Leicester unless they have an EHCP – in which case Traineeship provision can be accessed at any centre)
  • Looking to take advantage of our relationships with local employers, for work experience in the occupational sector of interest
  • Wanting to improve their employability skills
  • Looking to improve their English and Maths skills
  • Wanting to progress to an apprenticeship, sustainable job or a course of further learning within 6 months

If the answer is YES to any of the above, then a Traineeship is for you.  Come and join other young people that have used our Traineeship course to start their new career and turn their dreams into reality.  

A Traineeship is a full time course, so Child / Employment Benefits may still be claimed.  Students may also receive a bursary / learner support whilst on the Traineeship course – subject to meeting specific criteria.  Bursaries can be used for travel costs, free meals, interview clothing and personal protective equipment.

How a Traineeship secured an Apprenticeship for Shanice …Shanice

Shanice “Traineeships are something I never considered until Juniper introduced them to me. To begin with I was against them however, I now think they are a great idea and before all Apprenticeships start everybody should be put on one. My reasoning for this is because they give individuals the opportunity to see what a particular role involves before signing any kind of contract; it gives chances.

Staff Direct LogoFrom my own personal experience on being part of a Traineeship, I was able to try out different areas in business which helped me have a good idea of what specific career path I wanted to take. Therefore, more and more people should know what a Traineeship is and why they are beneficial.  Moreover, Juniper have been so helpful and I’m really grateful. I never thought that I would pass maths or have the opportunities I have. However, Juniper have aided me in passing maths as well as got me an Apprenticeship in the right career path with Staff Direct 4 U”.  Thank you
