What is a Traineeship?

A traineeship is a Personal Development Programme that aims to provide you with Maths and English qualifications, career development and valuable work experience to help you with those final steps into the world of work. The Traineeship Programme is unpaid work experience but you will have travel expenses and lunch allowance for the duration of the programme.

Depending on the sector you are looking to work in, we will match you with an employer so you can learn on-the-job and get a feel for what it’s like in a working environment. This work experience will help you decide whether the particular role and industry is right for you.
