Traineeship is a formal training arrangement involving three parties: the trainee, YOU the employer and ITE. The role of the trainee is to pursue and complete the course within the given duration to the satisfaction of the sponsoring company. The sponsoring company agrees to train and instruct the trainee and assign a qualified trainer who would supervise and monitor the trainee's progress throughout the course.
The training received by a trainee comprises off-the-job training and on-the-job training. Under the off-the-job training component, trainees are taught the technical knowledge and techniques
while under the on-the-job training component, trainees apply the knowledge and skills learnt in the off-the-job component.
About the scheme
The Traineeship Scheme is a formalised ‘Earn-as-you-Learn’ training arrangement that is specially designed for YOU, as an employer, to recruit and provide fresh secondary school leavers with skills training leading to nationally-recognised ITE qualifications. The duration of traineeship is about two years and the training covers 2 components:
- On-the-Job training (OJT) provided in-house by your company. The OJT component will form the greater part of the skills acquisition that your trainee will be provided with and under the mentorship of your skilled technicians or supervisors; and
- Off-the-Job training conducted by ITE or PMAS (ITE Approved Training Centre) where theoretical and practical lessons are covered.
You will sponsor your trainee and bear all course and other related fees incurred for the duration of training. Generally, classes are conducted on a day-release basis.
