A traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience, focused on giving young people the skills and experience employers are looking for.

Traineeships are very flexible, and by working closely with a training organisation, you can design a programme which suits your needs and those of the trainee.

Traineeships can last from six weeks up to six months and include:

  • work preparation training provided by the training organisation
  • English and maths support if required, provided by the training organisation
  • a high-quality work experience placement with an employer

In addition to these basic elements, you and the training provider can add flexible additional content to meet the needs of your business and the local labour market.

At the end of their traineeship, each young person will be guaranteed a job interview if a role becomes available or exit interview and a reference from the company providing the work experience placement.
