WHAT IS TRAINEESHIP?

A Guide For Employers

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Traineeship is a formal training arrangement that enables school leavers to 'learn as they learn'.  

The trainee learns a marketable skill from the company and ITE or an ITE approved training provider.  The skills acquired are certified by ITE.

Traineeship involves 3 parties

Traineeship training comprises 2 components:

On-the-Job Training

On-the-job training is conducted by the company under actual work conditions. It is supervised by an experienced and qualified company trainer.  Training received is recorded in the training logbook and diary.

Off-the-Job Training

Off-the-job training includes theoretical and practical lessons which  are conducted by ITE or an ITE approved training provider. 

The off-the-job training may be conducted on a full-time block-release basis, a one-day-a-week basis or a combination of both.
