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 are very flexible, and by working closely with a training organisation a programme can be designed which suits the needs of employer and trainee.

Traineeships can last from six weeks up to six months and will include:

  • Work preparation training provided by the training organisation
  • English and maths support if required, provided by the training organisation
  • A work experience placement with an employer
