Traineeships are designed to help young people gain the skills and experience for work. They are a partnership between an employer and the College.

You can view the Government's Traineeships Guidance page for more information, or view our current traineeship opportunities here.

You’ll be eligible if you:

  • want to get a job and you have limited work experience
  • are aged 16-24 and do not have a full level 3 qualification (you can have up to 1 A Level)
  • your college and employer/placement provider believe you have a reasonable chance of being ready for employment or an apprenticeship within six months of starting your Traineeship

Traineeships include:

  1. A high quality work placement – to provide meaningful work experience and develop workplace skills
  2. Work preparation training – developing interpersonal skills and including CV writing, job search and interview skills
  3. English and maths – crucial employability skills

Traineeships will last up to 6 months. The work placement within a traineeship will be at least 6 weeks and no more than 5 months.

What happens at the end of a traineeship?

Once you have completed a Traineeship, it is expected that you’ll progress onto an apprenticeship or job.  Alternatively, you may decide to enrol on a course to gain specialist qualifications for your chosen career.

Those on Traineeships will be offered an exit interview with their work placement organisation to help them practise and prepare for future job interviews. Where available, these interviews may be for real apprenticeships or jobs within the organisation. You may also gain qualifications from courses completed with the College, to add to your CV.
