What’s a Traineeship?

A Traineeship is new type of training programme designed to give you the work experience you need to progress onto an Apprenticeship or other type of paid employment in your chosen career area.

You will spend most of your Traineeship with an employer whilst learning in the workplace, you may also spend some time working towards vocational or employability qualifications. You can also improve your Maths and English.

A Traineeship can help you to build up your confidence and give an employer the chance to get to know you before taking you on, without the pressure of a formal recruitment interview.

You will build up valuable work experience and have plenty of new things to add to your CV. The vast majority of our Trainees gain employment directly as a result of their Traineeship.

To do a Traineeship, you have to be aged between 16 and 24 years old and want to succeed. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any qualifications, or didn’t get the grades you expected at school, your Traineeship will be designed around you and where you want to be in the future.
