What is a Traineeship?

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. This is designed to help young people aged between 16 to 24 who are motivated to get a job but lack the necessary skills and experience that employers are looking for.

What Does a Traineeship Consist Of?

At its core, our Traineeships are comprised of the following core elements:

  • Work preparation training: such as CV writing, developing a personal statement and job searching
  • English support
  • Maths support
  • Work experience placement

Traineeships prepare young people for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’.

Candidates Suitable For a Traineeship:

  • Unemployed and have little work experience
  • Aged 16 to 18 and qualified below Level 3
  • Aged 19 up to 23 and have not yet achieved a full Level 2
  • Can be ready for employment or an Apprenticeship within six months of engaging in a Traineeship
  • Motivated to work

How Long Do Traineeships Last?

Traineeships will last anything from 6 weeks to a maximum of 6 months with the content tailored to the needs of the individual.

How Much Does It Cost?

All training costs are met by government funding. The employer may cover some expense costs for trainees, such as travel and food.
