The study also examines how participants perceive that they have developed skills that are specifik to their profession and how they became part of a community. The following questions were formed to make it possible to investigate the purpose further; ”Do the participants feel that the interaction within the trainee group has promoted their learning?”, ”How does the participants describe the training elements in relation to their development of competencies that they use in their professional role?” and ”How does the traineeprogram contribute to the participants becoming part of a community?”. This was examined by taking part of what previous research has highlighted as important for learning and socialization in relation to traineeprograms. Seven semi-structured interviews were conducted with employees of a company in the private service sector. The empirical data was analyzed based on theories of socio-cultural learning. The results show that participants in the traineeprogram early on are able to interact with many different people who work in the company. The training elements consists of both theoretical and practical education, which means that participants receive a broad knowledge that they need to face their future careers. Participants in the traineeprogram also feel that the ability to interact with others within the trainee group has promoted their learning both during training and it is something that they can use after graduation.
