Thinking about an apprenticeship but not sure you are ready? Well that is where a traineeships comes into it, as they are pre apprenticeships.
You do a traineeship to make sure you are capable of going on to do an apprenticeship and also to give you a taster of what will come in a longer term apprentice.
Traineeships are for young people aged 16 to 24 to gain knowledge, skills and experience needed to get an apprenticeship or job.
Traineeships are usually for 12 or 16 weeks and are voluntary, however whilst you are undertaking a traineeship you're entitled to receive help with the cost of travel both to and from your training and work experience placement.
You can apply for a traineeship if you’re:
- Eligible to work in England
- Unemployed and have little or no work experience
- Aged 16 to 18 and qualified below Level 3, or aged 19 to 24 and qualified below Level 2
