Sponsored Trainees


The University is a major provider of employment locally. It is important that we fulfil our obligation to the whole community in which we operate. We are keen to extend training opportunities to those not in employment to assist in improving their long term employability and do so by participating in Government and charitable organisation sponsored schemes e.g. Skill seeker, Training for Work, short term work experience in conjunction with local organisations such as Dundee & Angus College, the Claverhouse Group and local schools.

Whilst the opportunities offered to trainees through these schemes must be both, realistic and beneficial to the Trainee, as they will include practical work experience, it is not an alternative to employing a qualified member of staff. Care should be taken to avoid any impression that a trainee is filling an established post.
