A traineeship is a course with work experience that help you to get ready for work or an apprenticeship.

  • flexible training to meet your needs: six-week courses
  • you will benefit from both study in College and high-quality work experience in industry to support your skills and career development
  • you will study CV writing, interview skills, team working and job search
  • additional English and maths is also available.

Who are traineeships for?

Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people who are motivated to get a job but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for.

You can apply for a traineeship if you’re:

  • eligible to work in England
  • unemployed and have little or no work experience
  • aged 16 to 24 and qualified below level 3.

What are the benefits of a traineeship?

On successful completion of the traineeship you will have the confidence to take the first steps in your career, and you will be in a better position to compete for an apprenticeship or other jobs.

We will support you to meet employers and apply for apprenticeship vacancies – with a guaranteed interview on successful completion.
