BECOME ‘WORK READY’ WITH A TRAINEESHIP
A Traineeship is an education and training programme with work experience focused on giving you the skills and experience employers are looking for.
Traineeships help unlock your great potential and give you the work preparation training, maths and English and work experience needed to get an Apprenticeship or other job. The programme is designed so that you can move into employment as soon as a suitable vacancy becomes available.
How a Traineeship Works
