For example you could spend your traineeship working in a busy restaurant or hotel, completing business administration tasks in an office or learning new skills at a construction site. 

Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people who are motivated to get a job but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for. Those who have been unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other position due to a lack of skills and experience are most likely be good candidates for a traineeship.

Traineeships last anything from 6 weeks to 6 months with the content tailored to the needs of the business and the individual.

Entry Guidelines

A traineeship could be suitable if:

  • you're aged 16 - 24
  • you're unemployed (or work less than 16 hours per week) and have little work experience
  • you think you'll be ready for employment within six months of starting a traineeship

Where can I progress to?

Upon completion of a traineeship programme, all participants are guaranteed either a job interview (if a relevant position is available), or an exit interview that will provide valuable feedback to help them towards securing an apprenticeship or employment.
