Preparing for Employment

Traineeships

A Traineeship is a study programme that combines work experience, Maths and English support and employability skills training. 

Traineeships can be between 6 weeks and 6 months long depending on the young person and employers requirements, some training providers are flexible and offer rolling start dates and help match you with an employer that links to your interests,  others will have set programmes and start dates led by one particular large employer. 

Website links to training providers that have previously offered programmes locally are listed below (each one opens a new window):

Please contact the training provider directly to find out about their current offer as they may change throughout the year.
