Traineeships

The Traineeship programme is an occupational skills development programme which combines formal training with Kildare & Wicklow ETB and workplace coaching with an employer. The training content and occupational standards for traineeships are developed in consultation with employers, trade unions, regulatory bodies and interest groups. The programme is aimed at clients who will enter occupations that entail significant skills requirements which are best acquired through a combination of alternating periods of on and off the job training. Some traineeships run in Kildare & Wicklow include:

  • Accounts Executive Traineeship
  • Beauty Therapy Traineeship
  • Healthcare Support
  • ICT Associate Professional – Systems & Networks
  • IT Support Specialist
  • Medical Administration
  • Outdoor Activity Instructor Traineeship
  • Pharmacy Sales Assistant
  • Software Developer Traineeship

The duration of a traineeship programme is determined by the requirements of each set of skills to be acquired for the occupation for which the person is being trained. With the inclusion of the on-the-job training element, traineeship programmes range from 15 to 59 weeks.
