Traineeships are an opportunity to gain real work experience, on-the-job skills and improve English and maths skills. The programme can last up to six months with content tailored to the individuals needs. They are ideal if you’d like to get an apprenticeship or job but haven’t yet acquired the necessary skills or experience.
To qualify, you must:
- Be aged between 16 and 24
- Be unemployed, or work fewer than 16 hours a week and have little work experience
- Be motivated to work
Traineeships don’t include a wage, but you may be entitled to money towards travel costs and expenses. To find a traineeship visit www.gov.uk/find-traineeship
