What are Traineeships?
- Traineeships were introduced back in 2013.
- They are an education and training programme with work experience for young people.
- They are designed for young people whose preference is to find an apprenticeship or job but lack the skills, experience and behaviours sought by employers.
- Traineeships are a focused, flexible offer with a direct line of sight to employment.
- The aim of traineeships is to secure young people’ progression into an apprenticeship, employment or further education.
Who are they for?
Traineeships are for young people aged 16-24 and for young people with an education health and care plane of learning difficulty assessments up to the academic age of 25. These young people would currently not be in full time employment and have little work experience, but who are focused on work of the prospect of it.
