Traineeships are an opportunity for young people to gain real work experience and job skills.

At its core are a high-quality work experience placement, work preparation training and English and Maths if needed. Traineeships give young people aged 16 to 24 the skills and experience that employers are looking for, helping you to boost your careers prospects with an apprenticeship or other employment in the future.

The benefits:
  • The opportunity to build your CV and get valuable work experience with local and national employers, where you are able to learn about the business and the industry it operates in.
  • Work preparation training will put you in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or other employment.

  • At the end of your work experience you’ll get an interview with your work experience employer and an offer of employment/apprenticeship if a position is available, or a written reference with feedback and assistance to help you find an apprenticeship or other employment.
