Traineeships FAQs

Not sure if a Traineeship is right for you? We've put together answers to all the common questions about Traineeships here.

What’s a Traineeship?

A Traineeship is new type of training programme designed to give you the work experience you need to progress onto an Apprenticeship or other type of paid employment in your chosen career area.

You will spend most of your Traineeship with an employer whilst learning in the workplace, you may also spend some time working towards vocational or employability qualifications. You can also improve your maths and English.

A Traineeship can help you to build up your confidence and give an employer the chance to get to know you before taking you on, without the pressure of a formal recruitment interview. You will build up valuable work experience and have plenty of new things to add to your CV. The vast majority of our Trainees gain employment directly as a result of their Traineeship.

Where will I train?

Your work experience placement will be with a local employer. You may attend your local Training Centre to undertake any qualifications you have chosen, we have lots of local Training Centres so you won’t have to travel far.

When can I start?

You can start with us at any time - we don’t have set start dates.

How long will it last?

Your Traineeship will last any time between six weeks and six months.

What qualifications will I get?

Your Traineeship will include working towards recognised qualifications that will help you to progress into employment.

What will I earn?

Traineeships are unpaid but you can apply for a Bursary (of up to £40 per week) and will get help towards the cost of your lunches and travel. If you aren’t eligible for a Bursary you can also apply for a Learning Grant. Get in touch for more details. We will work with you to help you secure paid employment as soon as possible.

Who can apply?

You have to be aged between 16 and 24 years old and want to succeed. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any qualifications, or didn’t get the grades you expected at school, your Traineeship will be designed around you and where you want to be in the future.
