Health and Social Care Traineeship

Traineeship Plus – across Hampshire

Do you know a young person keen to get their first job in Health and Social Care, but who needs a helping hand?

Hampshire Futures’ Traineeship Plus Programme is running again in September and applications are now open. 

Traineeship Plus helps young people who are keen to work but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for.  The programme gives them the opportunity to undertake a three month work Health and Social care placement so their move into employment is not as daunting. At the same time, they gain support from dedicated tutors to improve their English and maths and attain a Level 1 Health and Social Care qualification.

What kind of roles will there be on a Health and Social Care Traineeship?

This is a fantastic opportunity to get a broad overview of Health and Social Care. Working directly in Day Centres, Residential Care Homes, Drop Ins and Children and Young People settings with clients such as the elderly, those with dementia, adults with learning difficulties and young people, there is a chance to see how it all works. Roles are likely to be Activities Co-ordinator or Nursery Assistant and will not involve any personal care during the Traineeship Plus programme.

There are regular Apprenticeship opportunities in Health and Social Care with Hampshire County Council and many trainees have gone on to secure apprenticeship opportunities as a result of taking part in the Traineeship Plus programme.

Traineeships are available for young people aged 16 to 24, qualified below level 3.

How to apply

Applicants must hold a minimum grade D/3 in GCSE English or maths (non GCSE qualifications are considered on an individual basis).
