    Carshalton College is now offering Traineeships in Catering and Hospitality.

    What is a Traineeship?

    A Traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that is focused on giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for. At its core are work preparation training, English and Maths for those who need it, and a high quality work experience placement.

    Traineeships last anything from six weeks to a maximum of six months with the content tailored to your individual needs and the needs of the employer, including:

    • Work preparation training which ensures you are ready and have the confidence to take the first step in your career, such as an Apprenticeship.
    • English and Maths1 support to help give you the literacy and numeracy skills needed for the workplace.
    • A meaningful work experience placement which provides insight and experience of the world of work.

    What are the benefits of a Traineeship?

    • A Traineeship will put you in a better position to compete for an Apprenticeship or other job.
    • The opportunity to build your CV and get vital experience with local and national employers.
    • Improving your English and Maths skills will boost your chances of getting a job, as well as improving your long term prospects and earning potential over your lifetime.
    • Employers are at the centre of Traineeships to ensure they give you the skills you need to secure a job and succeed in employment.
    • At the end of the work experience placement you’ll get a job interview with the company if a role becomes available or a reference and an exit interview.

    Will I be paid?

    Work experience placements are unpaid, but employers are encouraged to support expenses such as transport and meals and depending on your circumstances you may be able to access financial support from your training provider, through the 16-19 Bursary Fund or the 19+ Discretionary Learner Support Fund. All training costs are funded by the Government.

    Is a Traineeship right for me?

    Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people who are motivated to get a job but who lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for. If you have been unsuccessfully applying for Apprenticeships due to a lack of skills and experience then you might be a good candidate for a Traineeship. You could be suitable for a Traineeship if you:

    • are unemployed (or work less than 16 hours per week) and have little work experience;
    • are motivated to work;
    • are aged 16 - 18 inclusive and are qualified below Level 3 OR are aged 19 - 23 inclusive and are qualified below full Level 2.

    A Traineeship is probably not right for you if you:

    • already have the skills and experience needed to find an Apprenticeship or work;
    • are aged 24 plus (unless you are subject to Learning Difficulty Assessments and are aged 16 or over and under 25)
    • are already in a job

    Commencing on Saturday 4 October 2014, Carshalton College will be running free weekly Saturday Coderdojo Workshops from 10.00am to 1.00pm during term time. 

    Come along and engage with creative programming and digital fun for young people and parents.

    Carshalton Coder Dojo is part of the international network of Dojos that aim to foster an interest in all aspects of coding computers and devices. They are open to people of all ages and have mentors from the software industry to help and advise. Parents are more than welcome to come along ( If you are under 12 they MUST stay with you.)

    With experts to help from the creative industry, children and parents can learn programming technology together and

    • Use 3D and Creative Software
    • Create computer games
    • Learn to programme
    • Design Robots

    The group is completely free to attend.  It is run on a voluntary basis by Mark Gatehouse, Team Leader for Creative Industries and IT at Carshalton College, with help from other volunteers from the computing and gaming industries.   The workshops are for all-abilities and have included children as young as six, as well as teenagers and their parents. 

    “We help them learn coding skills by trying out things like game design and robotics,” says Mark.  “They have a lot of fun and hopefully we’re setting them up for great future careers.  Coding skills mean it’s possible not only to use the latest technology but to modify it, which has the potential to make these future professional coders extremely valuable to employers.”  

    Sue Spenceley Burch from Wallington started bringing her 13-year-old son to Carshalton Coderdojo early in 2014.  “He spends a lot of time on his laptop, so I thought he’d enjoy finding out how the games he loves are actually created.  He’s learned a lot, and he likes it so much he’s signed up for a computer science course at school.  He sees it as a possible future career, but whatever industry he eventually ends up in, it’ll be really valuable experience.”

    Carshalton College Music Tutor, Jay Relf, has written and produced the Christmas single being released at the end of the month by Channel 5’s presenters to their children’s segment Milkshake.

    Derek, Jen, Kemi, Amy, Olivia and Travis have recorded the track “It’s Christmas” after it was used on a TV programme last year and was so popular, the channel decided to ask Jay to re produce the song and Universal will release it as a single. The single is a classic Christmas track that gets you in the festive spirit as soon as it starts with a high tempo happy infectious beat.

    Jay has worked with Channel 5 for eight years writing and producing all types of music for various programmes. This track will also include the talents of Carshalton College music student Charlie Wright,18, who contributed to the guitar sounds. This was a great opportunity for Charlie to see the high production value of this kind of project where they need the equivalent to a chart hit but with a very happy theme to appeal to the young target audience. As Jay explains this work experience expands their breath of possibilities of how to work in the music industry

    “Working musicians have to be flexible and explore all avenues of exploiting their musical talents. Charlie was extremely professional and did a great job in working on this single.”

    Jay Relf is an award winning music producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist. Having learnt the craft of music arrangement through playing in bands in the early part of his career Jay began experimenting with electronic based music in early 90’s. He soon was releasing his own material, which led him on to working with some influential artists such as Leftfield, Andrew Weatherall (Producer of Primal Screams ‘Screamadelica’) and Sascha and Digweed.

    Having moved to London and securing a publishing deal with BMG, he began working with numerous artists across genres such as Garage, Ragga,Hip Hop and R&B, most notably producing and co-writing tracks for Phoebe One who went on to win a Mobo award in 2002. Other labels he has worked for include Universal, Island Records, BMG and Sony Music.

    Aside from his teaching at the College, Jay currently composes music for Media/TV based companies including the BBC, ITV and Channel 5 on various TV shows and advertisements, as well as co-writing and producing for new and up-and-coming artists. He is a fantastic tutor to have at the College with his wealth of experience composing and making all different types of music.

    Carshalton College offers the BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Music Technology and Performance and the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music Technology. Both courses offer the opportunity to develop skills in music performance and music technology for a career in a variety of roles in the music industry.

    Join our free weekly Saturday Coderdojo Workshops from 10.00am to 1.00pm during term time. 

    Come along and engage with creative programming and digital fun for young people and parents.

    Carshalton Coder Dojo is part of the international network of Dojos that aim to foster an interest in all aspects of coding computers and devices. They are open to people of all ages and have mentors from the software industry to help and advise. Parents are more than welcome to come along ( If you are under 12 they MUST stay with you.)

    With experts to help from the creative industry, children and parents can learn programming technology together and

    • Use 3D and Creative Software
    • Create computer games
    • Learn to programme
    • Design Robots

    The group is completely free to attend.  It is run on a voluntary basis by Mark Gatehouse, Team Leader for Creative Industries and IT at Carshalton College, with help from other volunteers from the computing and gaming industries.   The workshops are for all-abilities and have included children as young as six, as well as teenagers and their parents. 

    “We help them learn coding skills by trying out things like game design and robotics,” says Mark.  “They have a lot of fun and hopefully we’re setting them up for great future careers.  Coding skills mean it’s possible not only to use the latest technology but to modify it, which has the potential to make these future professional coders extremely valuable to employers.”  

    Sue Spenceley Burch from Wallington started bringing her 13-year-old son to Carshalton Coderdojo early in 2014.  “He spends a lot of time on his laptop, so I thought he’d enjoy finding out how the games he loves are actually created.  He’s learned a lot, and he likes it so much he’s signed up for a computer science course at school.  He sees it as a possible future career, but whatever industry he eventually ends up in, it’ll be really valuable experience.”

    Our last session in 2014 is on Saturday 13 December and our first session back in the New Year is on Saturday 10 January. To book a space online, please click here
