An report of the traineeship programme for the round 2015 to 2019. Traineeships combine a mixture of soft and essential skills training with a period of work experience.
The current programme, focused on 16-19-year olds, aims to reduce the proportion of young people in Wales classified as not in education, employment or training (NEET). It also aims to facilitate their progression into employment or further learning.
The final evaluation report for this round of the programme explores:
- the impact the programme has had in both its hard and soft outcomes
- the overall value the programme has added through a cost-benefit analysis
- lessons learned for the future delivery of similar programmes and how good practice can be replicated and benefited from.
A series of conclusions and recommendations for the future of the programme are included in the report.
Traineeships are part-funded by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government.
