Evaluation of Traineeship Flexibilities

In partnership with Ipsos Mori, IES is evaluating the extended and more flexible government Traineeships programme. The surge in youth unemployment makes Traineeships a key pre-employment pathway for young people and the new flexibilities are intended to encourage employers to provide high quality opportunities and secure employment for young people as the economy recovers. The process evaluation includes interviews with training providers, employers and trainees, and the use of digital ethnography.
