Step 4 – Traineeship
A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. Programmes can last from 6 months up to 1 year.
Traineeships help 16- to 25-year-olds with an education, health and care (EHC) plan - get ready for an apprenticeship or job if they don’t have the appropriate skills or experience.
A traineeship is an excellent way to prepare young people for an apprenticeship or for entry into employment. At a time when young people face even more challenge and competition in the labour market from older and more experienced workers, a traineeship can be the step up that they need to launch their career and enter the labour market.
We work together with employers to offer high quality traineeships and is an opportunity to support young people into work and help tackle youth unemployment.
