Traineeships unlock the great potential of young people and prepare them for their future careers by helping them to become work ready. They are an initiative that provide the essential work preparation training, maths and English and work experience needed to get an apprenticeship or other job, often even referred to as ‘pre-apprenticeships’.

Traineeships are delivered by training providers and funded by the government, with employers providing the valuable work experience placement and interview as part of the programme. It is a great way of developing young people and creating your future workforce if you're not quite ready to go down the full apprenticeship route.
