Celebrating Traineeship Success in Weymouth!

“The Traineeship, ended up giving me so much confidence that I’ve now had a rather successful interview.”

Olly, Trainee , was originally referred to our Weymouth centre by his Job Centre Work Coach.  He was interested in construction and gaining his CSCS card.  With further discussion, the team identified he would benefit hugely from the Traineeship programme too.

Olly confided that he had found gaining work difficult due to being affected by his mental health , anxiety and depression.

He started the Traineeship programme at the beginning of  March 2022.  He immediately started working through his Employability Award units, Maths and English at Level 2 and Digital Skills Level 1.  He was highly motivated and worked through exercises quickly to a good standard and completed work ready for his final exams and assessments.

Olly passed his Level 2 English and Maths on the 1st attempt. and has since taken his Digital Skills Level 1 exam and is just awaiting marking and quality assurance.

As part of the Traineeship, Olly secured a work experience placement  at Dorset Trade Sills (A local construction training company) where he quickly became part of the team.

Traineeship Tutor, Tony said, “We had excellent reports from Olly’s placement and he has now completed the required seventy hours!”

“Olly has been a model student and a very likeable, motivated person. He will complete all aspects of the Traineeship and will finish on the 1st July after just 16 weeks on the programme!”


Olly recently applied for a job with a local company (Phoenix Maintenance Services) and we are pleased to say that he was successful and has been offered a start in July 2022.

Olly emailed to say ,”Thank you to the team for the support you guys have given me. I would like you to know that the Traineeship, ended up giving me so much confidence that I’ve now had a rather successful interview and on completion of the course, I will be taken on with Phoenix Property Management”

Olly will feature on our next WREC Podcast  – Work, Recognition, Education & Careers, and we know his story will be an inspiration to many others.

We wish Olly every success for the future!
