Discover how traineeships can get you ready for an apprenticeship or job. A traineeship is an education and training programme which incorporates work experience, preparing young people for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’. Designed for people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the appropriate skills or experience, traineeships provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure an apprenticeship or employment. A traineeship has three core elements:
- A high-quality work experience placement with an employer.
- Work preparation training, provided by the training organisation.
- English and maths support, if required, provided by the training organisation
