Discover how traineeships help prepare trainees for an apprenticeship or work
A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. It can last from 6 weeks up to 1 year, though most traineeships last for less than 6 months.
Traineeships help 16 to 24 year olds – or 25 year olds with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan – get ready for an apprenticeship or job if they don’t have the appropriate skills or experience.
