Visit Isle of Wight Traineeship Programme

We need your expertise!

Traineeships are for 16 -24 year olds and last a minimum of 6 weeks. The idea is to encourage the new generation to take a career within the exciting Travel and Tourism industry; to give them real life experience and knowledge of the fast paced varied sector. This in turn gives the young person employability skills and they will act as ambassadors for the tourism industry on the Island.

Ideally the traineeships will be in positions such as front of house, customer service, reception, events, welcome team – they need to interact with the public.

There is no cost to the business.

How the project works

If you are interested and want to find out more  (there is no commitment at this stage), please fill in the form below. We will then allocate you a training provider from HTP, Isle of Wight College or Smart Training. The training provider will arrange to see you and discuss traineeships in full detail before you make a decision. We select the right person for your business and we hope it will help you in the running and operation of your organisation.

Visit Isle Of Wight will support the young person throughout the process and offer then specific training with the VIOW team in advance of their traineeship.
