  • A Traineeship will put you in a better position to compete for an Apprenticeship or gain employment

  • Traineeships give you the opportunity to build your CV and get vital experience with local and national employers

  • Improving your English and maths skills will boost your chances of getting a job, as well as improving your long-term prospects and earning potential over your lifetime

  • Employers are at the centre of Traineeships to ensure they give you the skills you need to secure a job and succeed in employment

  • At the end of the work experience placement you will get a guaranteed job interview with the company. Above all you will have gained valuable experience and skills needed within the working environment giving you increased confidence in your ability

Going from school or college into the world of work can feel like a huge leap. It doesn’t have to be. Get preparation tips and guidance for your interview or starting in your new role by checking out our Advice Centre.

You are suitable for a Traineeship if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are unemployed (or work less than 16 hours per week) and have little work experience
  • You are motivated to work
  • You are qualified below level 3
Although work placements are unpaid, employers are encouraged to support expenses such as transport. Depending on your circumstances you may be able to access financial support through the 16-19 Bursary Fund. All training costs are funded by the government.
Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people who are motivated to get a job but may lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for. If you have been unsuccessful when applying for Apprenticeships or jobs, then a Traineeship might be for you.
