What is a Traineeship?

A traineeship is a Skills Development Programme that aims to provide you with real work experience, vocational learning, a qualification and career development, to help you with those final steps into the world of work. The Traineeship Programme is not a paid job but gives you an opportunity to develop valuable skills employers are looking for which you can then add to your CV. Depending on you and the employer you’re training with, the Traineeship can be anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months.

We start by looking at the sector you want 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.
