A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. Traineeships help 16- to 24-year-olds, or 25-year-olds with an education, health, and care (EHC) plan to get ready for an apprenticeship or job if they don’t yet have the skills or experience needed. Traineeships can help you to get real work experience, job skills and improve your English and Maths skills, giving your career prospects a real jump-start.
Traineeships can last from 6 weeks up to 1 year (although most will last for less than 6 months).
Traineeships are just one route to the future you want.
