Trainee - Anyone with less than 6months experience
#3
Mornin all.

I share Trowel`s concerns on this one. Not only are there companies out here that exploit the "trainee" job description to acquire plenty of willing cheap labour, there are those units that take trainees on and simply don`t train them.Mr Hosty is sadly correct- skills transfer within the industry is virtually non-existant in some areas-largely due to our collective failure in experienced staff retention but also, our failure to confront issues on a national scale.When it comes to trainees, I would like to see them get an equivalent package to those who choose a career in the real world-namely: structured training agendas and a committment from their employers in writing.Would be good to have some minimum standards and guidelines on the issue of trainees too.We could of course look to academic institutions to raise the vocational elements of the undergrad courses too but, theres nothin like real-site experience to whet yer appetite... or induce one to look for a real job elsewhereBig Grin
