What is a Traineeship?

A traineeship is a tailor-made programme to support young people aged 16-24 who want to work but need extra help to gain an apprenticeship or a job.

Traineeships give young people the opportunity to develop the skills needed by employers, and the workplace experience to enhance long-term career development.
