Traineeships are formed to support young people approaching for an apprenticeship or employment job, but they do not have the required skills and experience. The traineeship education and training programme with work experience provide great potential for young people and make them for future careers by assisting them to get ready for work. The traineeship helps young people aged 16 to 24 who do not have skills and experience. The traineeship delivers the essential work training, English, maths and work experience required to approach apprenticeship or employment.
Completion of the traineeship assures a job interview and or exit interview together with meaningful written feedback to help them obtain apprenticeship or employment with employers.

Benefits of Traineeship
- Traineeships are stepping stone for young people before being employed in a permanent role or before starting an Apprenticeship. They help young people to get ready for the work.
- Traineeships are a flexible way of working with employers, adding to the content of Traineeships to meet the needs of the individual and the sector.
- At completion, the young person will be guaranteed a job interview if a role becomes available or an exit interview together with meaningful written feedback to help them secure an apprenticeship or employment with another employer.
- Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people, aged 16 to 24, who are motivated to get a job but lack the skills and experience that employers are looking for.
- Those who have been unsuccessful when applying for an apprenticeship or other jobs due to a lack of skills and experience are most likely be good candidates for a traineeship.
Traineeship Funding / Payments
Employers are not required to pay you for taking part in a traineeship but may support you with expenses such as transport and meals. The work placement is a real opportunity to gain meaningful work experience. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to access financial support from the training provider, for example, travel and childcare costs or if you need extra support due to a disability. If you are receiving welfare benefits, your Jobcentre may be able to support you financially. Training costs will be met by government funding.
