Traineeships help shape the skills and experience of young people from the local community and helping businesses to develop a loyal and talented workforce – its a Win-Win situation for everyone!

What is a traineeship?
A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. This Government funded programme aims to provide young people aged 19-24 with a variety of experiences, knowledge, practical skills and recognised sector qualififcations, along with a crucial work placement.

As an employer can you offer:

  • safe, meaningful and high-quality work experience
  • a minimum of 70 hours of work experience
  • sector specialist guidance throughout the work experience
  • an exit interview that could (if available) lead to a Kickstart or Apprenticeship opportunity or a job within your business.

Employers who offer traineeship work placements and complete the feedback at the end of each placement are eligible for £1000 incentive payment per trainee for up to 10 trainees, per region.
