A traineeship will equip you with the skills to progress to a full apprenticeship.
Traineeships are aimed at young people who might not feel ready for the world of work. With a traineeship, instead of getting a full time job, trainees get work experience placements which help them to prepare for getting a real job.
Trainees also undertake a range of compulsory qualifications in Maths and English (unless you already have those at GSCE). Also they have specific work preparation training that equip them with the skills to fit in a workplace.
It can take up to 6 months to complete a traineeship.
