What is a Traineeship? 

A Traineeship is a course with work experience which can last up to 6 months. This also helps to prepare the learner for work or an apprenticeship. A Traineeship provides the learner with an excellent opportunity to develop hands-on skills, improve their confidence and gain valuable work experience in a "real work" environment. Traineeships are also an great stepping stone and natural progression into apprenticeships 

You can apply if you are:

  • eligible to work in England
  • unemployed and have little or no work experience
  • aged 16 to 24 and qualified below Level 3                                                                                   

You’ll get:

  • a work experience placement with the opportunity to work in a "real" work setting
  • help with English and maths (if you need it)
  • You won’t be paid, but you may be given expenses for things like travel and meals.
