    Default trainee or trainees

    Hi,

    Question:
    Should I write "trainee or trainees"?

    Sentence:
    I believe that ABC Ltd can offer its trainee / trainees with good training.


    My opinion:
    There are more than 1 trainee in ABC Ltd, so logically "trainees" should be used.
    However, I am not sure whether it is idiomatic or not.

    Thanks

    "Trainees" is correct, but delete "with", unless you replace "offer" with "provide".
