A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. It can last from 6 weeks up to 1 year (although most will last for less than 6 months).

Traineeships help 16 to 24 year olds get ready for an apprenticeship or job if they don’t have the appropriate skills or experience.

Who can apply

You can apply for a traineeship if you’re:

  • eligible to work in England
  • have little or no work experience but are motivated to work
  • aged 16 to 24
