A new poll conducted by ICM Research found that 43 per cent of employers believe it is their duty to help develop the next generation workforce, while 35 per cent stated that it was their social responsibility to help young people develop the skills they need to get a foot on the career ladder. Offering work experience to young people through the new Traineeship programme is just one way employers can satisfy their desire to help. Launched last year, Traineeships aim to unlock young people’s potential by providing them with the work experience, work preparation training and maths and English skills needed for an apprenticeship or other job. Hundreds of employers, including the BBC, BT, National Grid, Everton in the Community, Jaguar Land Rover, Port of Tilbury, Siemens and Virgin Media have already committed to helping young people through the Traineeship programme. Rogers Restoration Ltd is a family run electrical business based in Somerset. It is leading on the development of a new Building Service & Engineering Traineeship and has also committed to taking on two trainees. By Shané Schutte
