In partnership with Kingston Maurward College, Avon Tyrrell offers Traineeship programmes designed to provide young people with skills that employers look for, meaningful work experience opportunities and support in their first steps into employment.

Our Traineeship programme is aimed at young people who are looking to progress into the world of work; offering real experience and qualifications within your chosen area, designed to help get you on the path to employment.

Course Location: Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Centre 

With access to a range of disciplines you will have the chance to focus your Traineeship on one of the following areas:

Outdoor Activities  |  Business Admin/Customer Service  |  Maintenance  |  Catering

As a small provider we have the ability to offer a personalised approach to your Traineeship. We can offer a wide range of options for you to consider allowing you to choose a combination of the above if you wish.

We are able to do this by a series of workshops, training and work experience with one of our teams here at Avon Tyrrell. All Traineeship Programmes at Avon Tyrrell will help build:

  • Employability Skills
  • Interview Skills
  • Confidence
  • Self Esteem
  • Courses, where required, will also cover Functional Skills in Maths and English.

Your chosen route

Depending on your chosen route, you will have the opportunity to gain Active IQ Level 1 and Level 2 Awards - focusing on your chosen field as well as general employability skills, and Functional Skills tutorials where necessary.

Work Experience

As well as offering a range of qualifications, work experience is also a key aspect of your Traineeship, providing you with practical work based learning so that you can add depth to you CV and demonstrate the skills and competencies needed in the workplace.  

At Avon Tyrrell you will have the opportunity to undertake a minimum of 30 hours work experience in either a range of roles, or on a selected specialist area
