What is a Traineeship?


You can expect three things from a Traineeship:


  • High quality work placements - where you can learn what’s expected of you in the workplace, and develop links with local employers

  • Flexible training - in other relevant areas to help you get ready for work, such as job search and interview skills, time-keeping and team working

  • Study in English and Maths (if appropriate)  - employers value these essential skills very highly.


At the end of your Traineeship, if there is a job or apprenticeship vacancy with the work placement host, you should receive an interview. If there isn’t a job or Apprenticeship opportunity at that time, you will receive an exit interview with the employer who provided the work placement. In this interview you can discuss what you’ve learned, and how it might help you with things like updating your CV and getting into a job or an Apprenticeship.


Traineeship programs are funded by the Government and last from six weeks to six months and are unpaid, however the16-19 Bursary Fund may help - it depends on your circumstances whether you can receive a Bursary..


Many employers offer both Traineeships and Apprenticeships – so you may be able to move to the next level with the same employer
