What are Traineeships?
Traineeships are a new Government programme designed to prepare you for your future career by helping you to become ready for the world of work. A Traineeship will prepare you for an Apprenticeship or other job by combining work preparation training, maths and English support with a high quality work experience placement.

Who is a Traineeship for?
Traineeships are for young people aged 19 to 23 inclusive, or those with a Learning Difficulty Assessment up to academic age 25, who are motivated to work but who have been unsuccessful in securing an Apprenticeship or other job due to a lack of skills and/or experience.

Must be aged 19-23 and qualified below Level 2 (equivalent to 5 GCSEs at grades A*-C) could be eligible for a Traineeship if they are unemployed and have little work experience.

How long is the course?
6 months in total.

2 days a week at a NowSkills centre for the first 10 weeks

2 days a week with an employer for 6 – 8 weeks
