Traineeships: what are they?

Traineeships started 1 August 2013 and are part of the apprenticeships family.

A traineeship is designed to help young people who are focused on getting an apprenticeship or sustainable job but who do not yet have the skills or experience to compete successfully for vacancies. Traineeships run for a maximum of 6 months.

The traineeships programme has 3 core elements.

  • work placement
  • work preparation training
  • English and maths support, if required

Traineeships are available for young people aged 16-24 inclusive, including young people with Learning Difficulty Assessments or Education, Health and Care plans. A learner is able to start a traineeship up to the day before their 25th birthday.

The core target group for traineeships is young people who:

  • are not currently in a job and have little work experience, but who are focused on work, or the prospect of it
  • are aged 16 to 24 and qualified below a level 3 qualification
  • employers and training organisations believe have a reasonable chance of being ready for employment or an apprenticeship within 6 months of taking part in a traineeship programme

If you are interested in applying for a traineeship, please fill out the form on the link at the left hand side of page and email application to
