What is a Traineeship?

Traineeships are designed to help young people who want to get an apprenticeship or job but don’t yet have appropriate skills or experience.

Are Traineeships recognised by employers?

Yes, they are, and increasingly more and more employers understand their potential. Some organisations are now using traineeships as part of their recruitment process, and they have found them to be very successful.

What qualifications does your child need to do a Traineeship course?

None. Traineeships are for young people who have little or no work experience but are focused on work or the prospect of it.

How will I know if my child is eligible for a Traineeship?

In order to be eligible for a Traineeship, if you are 16-24, you must not hold a full Level 3 qualification.

How many hours a week is the course?

Traineeships are approximately 30-35 hours of guided learning per week. This will be made up of time at one of our training sites, and time spent with an Employer for your child’s work placement.
