Traineeship Pre-employment programme
A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. It can last from 6 weeks up to 1 year. Our traineeship will last between 8 to 12 weeks dependent on individual need. Traineeships help you get ready for an apprenticeship or job if you don’t have the appropriate skills
or experience.

A traineeship is an excellent way to prepare you for an apprenticeship or for entry into employment. At a time when young people face even more challenge and competition in the labour market from older and more experienced workers, a traineeship can be the step up that you need to launch your career and enter the labour market.

Enrolling on a traineeship is an opportunity to support you into work and help tackle youth unemployment. Traineeships allow employers to nurture young people to find the right candidate for their job roles and ensure you fit with the culture of their organisation.
