• Traineeships for Employers

What is a Traineeship?

A Traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience that is focused on giving young people the skills and experience that employers are looking for. At its core are work preparation training, English and maths for those who need it, and a high quality work experience placement.

For more information on eligibility, funding and the business benefits of Traineeships please read the National Apprenticeship Service Fact sheet.
